I am running CVSNT 2.5.03 and I'm having a problem getting CVSNT to treat certain file types as binary. I'm hoping I can force this behavior, but after reading the docs and trying a bunch of things I still can't get this to work. When I build a windows binary I end up with an exe or dll and also a map and pdb file. I check all the files into CVS: exe, map, pdb. It treats the exe and pdb the way I would like it to treat them, as binary files. However, the map file it appears to treat as text. I expect this behavior by default since I'm guessing .map is not registered as a binary file type. However even after specifying -kb or -kB it still appears to treat the file as text. And I say this because when I update the map file and do a cvs diff it spews out a ton of diffs. What I'm looking for is for CVSNT to treat the map as it does the exe and pdb and when I do a diff just indicate whether the files are different or not but don't actually attempt to show the diffs. Is there a way to get this behavior? Thanks, Nick
