Hi Ted

Firtst: the line in the cvswrappers file should read *.doc -k 'b' (which is
a little different from *.doc -kb)

I once had a problem with cvswrappers because I used CVS to update the file
(as recommended) - and that did not work for me! When I committed the
changed cvswrappers file CVS did NOT update the "real" cvswrappers in
CVSROOT. So I reverted to editing the cvswrappers file directly in the
repository, and all worked fine from then on.

I am using WinCvs 1.2, CVSNT 1.10.8, ntserver protocol, and my repository
is on a network-share apart from the CVS-servermachine.

CVS 1.10.8 on Win2k

I thought that if I had a line like

*.doc -kb

in my cvswrappers file in CVSROOT, any *.doc file would automatically be
entered as binary, without having to use "-kb" at the cvs add command; is
this not the case?
