It's far better to just forget about it, though, and let cvs do > what it's good at :-) Thanks for the advice (basically, leave files R/W in the working directory and forget about "cvs edit"). In any event, I do not intend to use "cvs edit -c" which is indeed documented as a suboptimal use of CVS. However, "cvs watch on" is documented to *both* force a read-only checkout (which I find useful to quickly identify the files that are unmodified) and trigger the notification mechanism (which I don't need). My main observation is that the "permissions 666;" does interfere with the documented effect of "cvs watch on" with respect to read-only checkout. > > Tony -- - Thierry Moreau CONNOTECH Experts-conseils inc. 9130 Place de Montgolfier Montreal, Qc H2M 2A1 Tel.: (514)385-5691 Fax: (514)385-5900 e-mail: thierry.moreau at connotech.com
