Hey folks! I'm having a tough time getting started with my CVSNT server. Can anyone recommend a good book that includes CVS NT Servers? I'm slowly learning nuances thru this mailing list that I am unable to find in the documentation on line. Perhaps a good book would help me. However, I don't want to buy a CVS book on UNIX servers that has commands that won't work on NT servers. For example, I recently learned about the /c//dir syntax for specifying the repository on a windows machine and that is (I believe) specific to CVSNT.

Also, adding only marks a file for addition. You need to commit before it will actually be added to the repository. << in your sandbox >> cvs add foo.pl cvs ci -m "adding test file" foo.pl -- Glen Starrett _______________________________________________ cvsnt mailing list cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
