Hello: I am not sure if this is on purpose of accident, but I have found an annoying (to me anyway) different in how revision ranges are delt with in CVSNT and CVS. In particular, this range specification: -rrev1::rev2 is treated differently. In CVS it means to select all revisions in the range rev1 to rev2 excluding rev1. In CVSNT, it means to select all revisions in the range rev1 to rev2 excluding both rev1 and rev2. CVSNT does provide the equivalent functionality specified as: -rrev1:::rev2 (note 3 colons instead of 2). Is this 'by design'. This makes it harder to support a multi-platform solution that CVS and specifically this flag. Sincerely, James Couball
