I have to write simple CVS wrapper, and I have a problems with login. I 
found something about env var CVS_GETPATH and protocol (patch) cvsgui. But 
it don't work :-((.

Maybe Iam wrong

C:\testxxx>set CVS_GETPASS 'jolanaa'
C:\testxxx>"C:\cvs\cvs" login
Logging in to :pserver:stehule at localhost:2401:/usr/local/cvs
CVS password:

I need to write password. Why?

C:\testxxx>"C:\cvs\cvs" -v

Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.21 (client/server)

Last tortoisecvs has same behavior

Can You Help me?

Thank You
