Hi all,

CVSNT performs an automatic merge of text files when it thinks it can do it 
sucessfully, correct?

So, a couple of questions if I may:

1. If there are other changes that do conflict, does it still merge the 
things it thinks it can and then report what it cant? (ie: therefore in 
WinMerge you only see the things that CVS couldn't merge)
2. Or does it call the merge application with the 2 different and unmodified 
files? (ie: In WinMerge you see ALL differences and CVSNT will not have 
merged anything automatically)
3. Can automatic merging be switched off?

I am asking because one of our development teams is complaining that lines 
of code are disappearing when merging is occuring. We are using Visual 
Studio and a developer worked on a form which automatically generated some 
code in a c# file. This was commited. Another developer modified it as well 
and when the code was merged, some lines of generated code were not shown in 
either of the WinMerge panels.
