Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

Is there a summary of the environment variables CVS uses and how they are set up?
I would very much like to know how the CVS_CLIENT_LOG setting is done.
And where does the log wind up? In the command window on WinCvs or elsewhere?

Set the CVS_CLIENT_LOG environment variable on the client.   It'll log
communication both ways.
