You've committed DOS format files using cygwin CVS... this has written CR/LF pairs into the RCS files, which checkout as CR/LF/LF on a Windows box. There is no simple way to recover from this. Delete the affected RCS files and use either cygwin CVS *or* Windows CVS. Do not mix them as you take the risk of precisely what has happened, happening. Tony
