Because I am comparing the ways the diffs are invoked for these two
web based repository browsers so that my CVSMailer can be configured
to supply a diff link in both environments. (I think it was you who
started me off on that track using HTML emails etc...)

I don't know why the XP search engine comes up empty-handed on me so
often. Clicked the C:\ drive and searched for aspfool and found
nothing. Now actually you are correct, the dll is there....

But it did not work out anyway, could not use the viewcvs.asp file,
when I do I get a totally blank page returned...

Well, I have those RCS files that are needed by cvsweb, and I just
checked to see that they are on the path too. Maybe I need some
updates on these?
