    cvs commit -m "No comment" test.txt

Note that CVS does not encourage using

    cvs commit -m "" test.txt

- in this case it will ask you if you really want to use an empty log message. It is highly encouraged that you actually DO enter a descriptive log message (that's what the first 'window' you refer to is for: it's an editor window).

Subject: [cvsnt] How to commit without prompt after the command...

I am a new one on CVS.

Is possible to commit (to create a new file version) using a command
line without outputs and questions?


CVSROOT=:pserver:administrator:password at
cvs login
<<< OK >>>

I checked out one file "test.txt". I edited it and I want to create a
new release.

I executed
cvs commit test.txt

It opens a window. I needed to close it (1), and after it I need to
press Enter to confirm (2). 

Is possible to do it without these 2 steps?

Goal? cvs commit teste.txt and not open the window and not ask for
[enter] to confirm.
