Mike, 1. Is your CVSROOT really set to use username? 2. Are you trying to import 3 modules at the same time? I think these have to be done one at a time. Also, cd into the directory you are importing as cvs will import all the files from the current directory. 3. Try using the -n flag before the -m flag. cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org wrote on 03/26/2009 02:47:34 PM: > I entered this: > > set cvsroot=:sspi:username:/test ^^^^^^^^ > > It seemed to work as I got no error messages. > > Now I try the import command: cvs import -m "comments" mystuff/test WW start > > Here is what I get: > Invalid option -m > > (now bald from pulling hair out) > > Thanks. > > > > Hi Mike, > > > > You can either specify the CVSROOT on the command line (cvs -d > > :sspi:cvs-server:/repository) or set the CVSROOT environment variable (set > > CVSROOT=:sspi:cvs-server:/repository). > > > > HTH > > > > Paul > > > > cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org wrote on 03/26/2009 01:55:56 PM: > > > >> To Bo and Paul - thank you so much for your replies to my posts.
