Hi folks, I would like to determine the status of files managed by CVS (in my sandbox) and not have to do it using the CVS Status command, but rather by accessing the extended file properties. For example, I can view the status in Windows Explorer by adding the "CVS Status" column to the explorer view - this is what I want to capture in my Perl script (Not in CVS , Not Modified, Modified....) I have done this in the past by piping the CVS Status command to a file and then parsing the output to find what I need, but I would prefer a more direct route. This may be able to be accomplished in VB using Microsoft's DSOFile.dll but I'd much prefer to use Perl. I'd appreciate any advice you may be able to offer.
