Well, it looks like Eclipse 2.0 and the 57D server code may be a winning combination. The 57D code consistently writes the "E" error message, thus fixing my first problem, but it still can't write the final "error" response. So the new server code still does not work with Eclipse R1.0 or conform to the protocol document. However, on testing it with Eclipse 2.0 F1, it appears that they have met you halfway and eliminated their dependence on receiving the "error" response. My testing so far shows the 57D server code and Eclipse 2.0 working fine together, though the new Eclipse provides access to a lot more CVS functionality than the old one, and it will take a while to try it all out. The release version of Eclipse 2.0 is scheduled for the end of next month, and rumor has it that the IBM flavor of it won't be too far behind -- by fall, at least. So it looks like you can probably file this one under the "someday if I run into a popular client the expects strict compliance and I've got nothing better to do" category. Though it still looks like you could comply pretty well by writing "error \n" just before exiting on abort -- I had modified cvs_outerr so it could optionally write a message without an "E" prefix, and I used it to write "error \n" just before error_exit( ) is called in error(...). Thanks for your help, and for providing CVS for companies with Unixphobia. -Martin -----Original Message----- From: Tony Hoyle [mailto:tmh at magenta-netlogic.com] Sent: Friday, May 24, 2002 5:59 AM To: 'Schmidt, Martin' Cc: 'cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook' Subject: RE: [Cvsnt] Re: CVSNT error handling and Eclipse/WSAD branch brow sing > -----Original Message----- > From: list at news.cvsnt.org [mailto:list at news.cvsnt.org]On Behalf Of > Schmidt, Martin > Posted At: 23 May 2002 21:30 > Posted To: cvsnt > Conversation: [Cvsnt] Re: CVSNT error handling and Eclipse/WSAD branch > browsing > Subject: [Cvsnt] Re: CVSNT error handling and Eclipse/WSAD branch > browsing > > > This is precisely what the Unix version does in my problem > case, and is just > what Eclipse needs (in addition to the "E" error message). > CVSNT should > follow the "E" message with at least "error \n". > I've changed the server code quite a bit in 57d, so if you've got the chance try checking out that release (tag CVSNT_1_11_1_3_57D) and see if it behaves better for you.
