You've stated your case clearly, and gotten an answer. It wasn't the answer you wanted but you still have plenty of choices: -- Use some other product that contains an equivalent function. For example, does the NONGNU CVS port to Win32 support --lf? I can't tell because it *isn't documented*. -- Patch it yourself! Right now it's just a warning, it shouldn't be difficult to locate and eliminate the print statement that outputs it and recompile. If you lack the skill yourself, maybe you can find other users who want the --lf option and convince them to help. -- Develop your code under cygwin with the cygwin CVS. -- Develop your code under a real linux/unix system with CVSNT or whatever version you like. -- Purchase CVS Professional and pay to have that feature modified with a switch to suppress the warning and maintained. Tony is trying to not expend effort on supporting buggy features that have no use to 99% of all users out there. There are only so many development hours in a day, and IMHO I believe 'no' serves the overall community better than a 'yes' in this case. Regards, Glen Starrett
