Assume that your sandbox is in c:\sandbox (1) Make a file called "NewRoot" that contains the new repository root. Put this file in the root of your sandbox (c:\sandbox\NewRoot). (2) in the sandbox, do "dir /b/s Root > a.bat" (3) Open a.bat with your text editor and do a find&replace: find: "C:\" replace: "copy /Y NewRoot C:\" each line in this file will look like: "copy /Y NewRoot C:\sandbox\folder\Root" (4) save the file run the resulting a.bat. I'm sure that somebody that uses linux can come up with a one line command to do this but I'm a GUI person myself. - Brian Gates, Donald T wrote: > I've run into a problem with using the Repository Prefix that I have not > seen mentioned here before. > > I'm using Build 57a (client and server) on Win2000 (client and server) and > WinCVS 188.8.131.52 Beta7 (Build 1). > > In each folder where my files are checked out to on my client system, the > CVS directories all have a file named "Root" which contains the "old" > (non-prefixed) repository root.
