Suppose two programmers checkout two copies of the same binary file and edit it. How do you merge binary files such as Microsoft Access or Microsoft Word, or Excel or. I can understand the logic of not locking source code files. Is it not necessary to lock binary files with an exclusive lock? Does cvsnt implement exclusive locks? I don't remember seeing such a command in the documentation. Can someone point me to the place in the documentation that discusses how to deal with simultaneous edits of binary files? Thanks, Siegfried
