Bo is correct that CVSWEB NT was originally written with RCS Utils 57 in mind, which dont support all the new fancy (and useful!) stuff that has been added since.

I recently tested (and fixed) CVSWEB NT so it would work with the RCS utils that come with CVS NT 2.0.36 (and I assume it'll work with 2.0.42 as well...).

The updates are in CVSWEB NT (cvswebnt_193_2_3.zip) which you can get from here:


ViewCVS which Bo mentioned is also certainly worth a look if you like Python!

No, it is not.
This is for CVSNT...

Even more off: CVSNT does not run on W98 and similar non-NT systems...

But, probably you are using a CVSNT *client* against your local
repository and now you failed to mention the most valuable
Which version of CVSNT executable are you using?

The problem is in CVSWEB:s usage of the *very* old RCS tools for
parsing the RCS repository files. These tools do not handle well all
the new stuff that has been added along the way such as mergepoints
etc. If you switch to ViewCvs instead you run a better chance since
ViewCvs nowadays uses the cvsnt executable as a RCS parser if you tell
it to.
