CVSNT files are not strictly RCS files any more (they're mostly the same, but things like binary deltas will just break RCS) but some commonly used frontends used RCS to access the files. The RCS wrappers are just for that... they allow such software to read the repository. I'm guessing emacs would be hard to change for the differences between the RCS diff and CVSNT diff, so probably isn't worth it (and it would want to write, since it's an editor, and there are is no wrapper for ci). Doesn't emacs have a cvs mode? That would work better. Tony
