Thanks Bo, I have a test server so will experiment. I will post my findings for all to see, though don't hold your breath as I am snowed under with work at the moment. Andy.

If you use the precommand or the commitinfo script then you should be able to fail the commit and print a message to the user telling him that he must not use spaces in filenames. For directories it is a different story, because those are really created immediately when you send the cvs add command on a directory. It is a bit strange though because the loginfo script gets called on a dir add so I have had to handle this case in my CVSMailer program in order not to send any emails for directory adds (there is no message associated for example). What happens when someone does a cvs import and there are dirs and/or files with spaces embedded I really don't know. Maybe the precommand script is the proper one for this or maybe commitinfo is also called in which case you can handle everything there. You should install a test server and experiment...

Thanks for all your input. I happen to be using scrips, auditing and TortoiseCVS and felt spaces may be problematic so I will be taking the advice and mandate that my users not use spaces. (This may cause me some problems however :), oh well!) I seem to remember a thread a while back discussing a scripted method of enforcing this in the add or commit operations, am I remembering correctly and if so can anyone point me to it as I can't seem to find it? Thanks, Andy.
