Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I've looked through various documentation and searched the web, but can't seem to find a reference to this subject.

When doing a

   cvs admin -m"log message" file

is there a way to insert a multi line comment?

cvs commit invokes and editor to enter multiple lines, but admin doesn't seem to.

We use cvs admin -m to correct check-in comments.
