Hi all, I have been trying to write some script files to assist with some of the common tasks we do in CVS and I have it a snag. I have been using the following command to setup the connection string: set CVSROOT=:pserver:domain\username:password at server_name:portNo/repository This works fine for most users but I now have someone that is using the @ symbol in their password. EG set CVSROOT=:pserver:domain\username:p at ssword@server_name:portNo/repository This obviously causes a problem with the string passing. Unfortunately the password structure used by this company means that a lot of users will probably have this symbol in their password. Is there and escape character I can use to get around this problem? Thanks.
