I'm about to write a WinCvs macro for changing the -k mode of selected files. I want this macro to work both with older and newer CVS/NT client and server versions. AFAIHU the procedure for doing this has changed somewhere in between 2.0.51 and 2.0.58 : Where before I would have done this: cvs admin -k[whatever] filename cvs update filename (the latter is only to get the new mode displayed, i.e. into the Entries file) I would now have to do this (if I understood correctly): cvs update -k[whatever] filename cvs commit -f -m"changed k-mode" filename Is that correct? Is there maybe some other way that would work both with GNU CVS/older CVSNT releases and the newer CVSNT? If there isn't, how would I detect which kind I'm dealing with (I'd rather not hardcode a check against cvs version output)?
