The VSS tasks call the external binaries that are installed with VSS. This
is from the file...

Unless there is a source safe binary for linux (not that I know of), I think

Subject: How to use VSS from script running on linux..?

Hi all,

I am trying to use our windows based script that connects to our VSS server
via the \\server\share name to run it. When I run this script on linux, it
give ma a I guess it makes sense, but is there any
"abstracted" source control API that allows you to get/put/compare/etc with
any source control system for Ant? I use the VSS tasks to get, check out,
etc, and they work great on windows. Just want to know how I can get them to
work the same when running the script on linux.
