What kind of files are you handling and from which client operating system? Line ending translation is only done on text files and the translations follow the *client* operating system line endings for text files. In the repository the line endings are always UNIX style in text files. Binary files otoh by definition do not have line endings since they are not line based and these are stored and retrieved as-is. > >I know about -kb (but this can be used only when adding new file). Wrong. If you have added a binary file to CVS as text by mistake it is easy to change the flag to binary afterwards. The file type change is possible only with CVSNT of course, plain GNU CVS does not allow this. But since you post here I assume you are using CVSNT of course. (Which version and on which platform?)
