Hi! Thanks for the info! I will try it out, if just edit -c doesn't work, then I will also include commit -c. The devguy suggests the following: ---------- WinCVS does not provide a user interface to the edit -c, commit -c, and unedit -c commands. It must be entered at the command line or within WinCVS's command-line window. You can also create a file named .cvsrc file in your HOME directory (the HOME environment variable points to it) containing the following: edit -c commit -c unedit -c ---------- I put the .cvsrc file in my HOME directory. Funny thing is, when I edit (pressing edit button on WinCVS), I don't see the command option -c in the console. I thought the .cvsrc file was a workaround to WinCVS not providing an interface to edit -c. I was hoping so because no one will be using the command line in my group, they will be using WinCVS. Thanks for your replies!! -Elsa -----Original Message----- From: Torsten Martinsen [mailto:torsten at image.dk] Sent: Friday, May 10, 2002 1:21 AM To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook; Simon.Hall at transwareplc.com Subject: Re: [Cvsnt] RE: Newbie question - reserved checkout, watched files edit -c You're wrong :-) 'edit -c' checks that no other users are editing the file. 'commit -c' is supposed to check that you have done 'cvs edit' before (i.e. you have not just removed the read-only attribute), but the code to do this is actually not implemented, at least not when I checked a few weeks ago. -Torsten ----- Original Message ----- From: <Simon.Hall at transwareplc.com> To: <cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook> Sent: Friday, May 10, 2002 9:28 AM Subject: [Cvsnt] RE: Newbie question - reserved checkout, watched files edit -c > Correct me if I'm wrong, but from my understanding if you put > "edit -c" in .cvsrc you must have a corresponding entry > "commit -c" to release the lock applied.
