Hi there, I've started playing around with modules2. I wonder whether it is possible to define "export"-modules within modules2. What I mean is following: Assume I've got two directories in the repository: test01/scripts test02/scripts Now I want to create one release from this 2 directories, defining the following in modules2: [myRelease] bin = test01/scripts bin = test02/scripts creating a bin-directory containing the contents of BOTH directories. I know this doesn't make sense for a normal "cvs checkout" (What would be the contents of the CVSROOT -files?), but using a "cvs export" should be able to handle this, since there are no CVSROOT-files which might get confused. (a problem here might be files with identical names ... - but lets ignore this problem) Doing a "cvs export myRelease" just exports the files of "test02/scripts" - the files from "test01/scripts" are missing. Using the old modules mechanism I solved this problem, calling a perl-script using the -o option of modules (-o prog Run "prog" on "cvs checkout" of module.) The perl script did the export. I wonder, whether modules2 offers a similar facility like the -o option? Is there any possibility to achieve the desired behaviour with modules2 file? Best would be, if "cvs checkout" notices during evaluation of the modules2 file, that different modules will go to the same destination ... and give some hints to it. "cvs export" shouldn't bother about duplicate destination cirectories .... Johannes
