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.

The WinCVS console shows the command ('cvs edit') as it is sent to CVS. CVS then reads your .cvsrc and acts as if the command was actually 'cvs edit -c', but the '-c' is not shown anywhere.

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 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.
