Tony, TortoiseCVS used to do a "cvs ls -q /" to get a parseable list of all modules on the server. I understand that as of 2.0.12, this is not allowed any more. I'd like to change TortoiseCVS to just use "cvs ls -q" - the big problem is that cvs then first prints the modules list, and then appends the list of virtual modules from CVSROOT/modules without a separator (if you just look at stdout, and that's what TortoiseCVS does. There is a blank line, but that's written to stderr, and therefore TortoiseCVS misses it): C:\>cvs ls -q CVSROOT MainModule Module1 Module2 Module with spaces in name ... Module n <-- Blank line written to stderr VirtualModule_1 MainModule Module 1 .... For parsing the list correctly, I need to know where the "ls" part stops and where the "CVSROOT\modules" part begins, as spaces in the module names need to be treated differently. So my question is: Could you a) change cvs to either write that blank line to stdout or and some other kind of separator or b) add an option to "ls" to suppress the CVSROOT\modules part? (The easiest thing would be if people stopped using blanks in module names, but apparently that's not going to happen.) -Hartmut
