I've never had any problem running shell scripts with CRLF line endings. In any case, 'cvs co -kb' should suppress conversion. It will, however, also suppress keyword expansion, which may not be desirable. There may be other options to the -k switch - have a look at the online documentation. I'm curious about these performance problems. The Cygwin cvs client should perform reasonably well. -- Jim
