It's possible that either they weren't added -kb, or that matlab has other dependencies in its files that need to be checked in at the same time. > On the client side I used both smartcvs and cygwin to do the add/commit > and checkout, and it makes no difference, so I'm thinking it's the server. I don't recommend cygwin cvs. There are too many issues with platform compatibility. It's possible smartcvs isn't using cvswrappers - you'd have to check the manual to see whether it overrides the filetypes (some do - eg. eclipse forces everything to -kkv when it checks in unles it's told not to).
