There's an option I saw for that somewhere--but I don't recall what it is. Try looking up the options for checkout in the CVSNT command reference. I think CR/LF substution happens before it hits the repository--all text files are stored in the repository with LF only, even on NT. The -kb option stops binary files from having the substitution happen on binary files (it would corrupt them). Hope this helps.

Hi. I have far from read through the complete news-archive and only quickly went through the wiki at www.cvsnt.org. So bashing is allowed. It is also possible that this question is not CVSNT-specific. If so I apology. My "problem" is that I would like to use LF (*nix-style) new-lines. I have trouble getting the IDE (eclipse on Windows) to easily commit the files with LF instead of CRLF. Also having trouble running diff cause of different new-lines. I have heard that CVS (the server?) is intelligent to depend on the OS of the CVS-client to check-out (or commit?) files with proper new-line. Though my experience (not CVSNT but CVS-server at linux) is that the *nix-users might get lovely ^M. Am I just dumb trying to have LF new-lines within the repository? Instead, simply whenever I want to distribute to *nix, I should check-out from such os? (bummer, not available). Current solution is to strip CRLF->LF after check-out and then distribute.
