Hi. I'm having a problem with CVS for NT. After checking out files and changing them, I try to do a 'cvs commit -m "Some Message" file(s)' but cvs doesn't check in my changed files. If I use the commit command without the -m option, cvs pops up a notepad window to enter the change message. When I close it, cvs checks in the file (as it should do). My main goal is to checkin a file non-interactively (in an Ant build file). I've tried to use the -F <filename> option, but it doesn't worked too. I've tried also to use the -e global option and the $CVSEDITOR environment variable to point to a batch file that writes to the temp file created by cvs when checking in, but cvs tells me that the file is unchanged and stops, asking for user input (abort, continue, etc). I thought that, somehow, it could be from the batch file. Then I made a simple C program that writes to the temp file. Same results, cvs says that the file is unchanged (althought it is changed - some lines appended). CvsNT version (cvs -v): Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 188.8.131.52 (Build 57j) (client/server) OS version: Windows 2000 Professional SP2 Well, I'm blocked. If anyone knows something about this problem, or is using the same configuration than I and the -m option is working, please let me know. Thank you. Tiago Fernandes P.S. I'm not subscribed to the list, so please when answering (I hope!) cc to me.
