I've been using the cvsnt command line client (2.5.03) to play around with cvs while I become familiar with the product. Wanting to skip typing the -d global option I set the environment variable $CVSROOT to my cvsroot (:sspi:redbonemobile:/pom). I have two repositories; /pom and /pom2. I then create a temporary directory and from it run: cvs checkout -A ./ This gets the CVSROOT info so that I can then add directories to the repository (maybe there is a better way, but this is what I came up with so far). I then create a directory called Eom in my temporary directory and run: cvs add Eom The output shows: C:\data\temp\cvsinit>cvs add Eom Directory /pom2/Eom added to the repository Why is it using the /pom2 repository as opposed to /pom? Using the CVSNT control panel I do see that /pom2 does have the 'default repository' value set. You can't seem to not have a default repository, which I would think would be useful. When I execute the same statements above but also include the -d global option everything works as expected. Here is my environment variable: C:\data\temp\cvsinit>set $CVSROOT $CVSROOT=:sspi:redbonemobile:/pom The docs show all the environment variables with the preceeding $, not sure if that's just indicating they are environment variables or the variable is actually supposed to have the prepended $. In any case I tried it both with and without the $ and the behavior was the same. Thanks, Nick
