Hi Arthur, >> What I am trying to achieve is when importing third party source >> trees, I would like all files to have "-ko" *except* binary files as >> specified by cvswrappers. In other words, provide a "default" >> value should there be no cvswrapper entry for any given file. > > In cvswrappers add a "default" line at the end * -ko It has the same effect as specifying "-W" on the command line as mentioned before, ie. it appears to cause all the other cvswrapper entries to be ignored, corrupting binary files. btw, comparing a dump of the client-server session when specifying this default wildcard or not, appears to show that when you do specify the wrapper option the CVSNT client is telling the GNU CVS server to set the keyword to be "-ko" for a file that has a "-kb" wrapper entry: --- cvs-nowrap.txt Fri Dec 22 14:06:22 2006 +++ cvs-wrap.txt Fri Dec 22 14:04:09 2006 Argument -W Argument *.lib -k 'b' @@ -178,48 +178,72 @@ Argument *.xls -k 'b' Argument -W Argument *.zip -k 'b' Argument -W Argument *.Z -k 'b' +Argument -W +Argument * -k 'o' Argument scratch/import_bin Argument SCRATCH_VENDBRN Argument SCRATCH_20061222 Directory . /export/cvsroot/scratch/import_bin -Kopt -kb +Kopt -ko Modified my.lib u=rw,g=rw,o=rw Regards, Chris
