Subject RE: CVS.exe for Ant
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2003 22:57:06 GMT
When you download CVSNT or WinCVS, they come with installer programs and
besides placing cvs.exe in an appropriate folder the installer installs the
other Client GUI Programs and stuff.

Now if the WinCVS/CVSNT GUI programs are not to be used, would
copying/placing the cvs.exe that comes with these application to any other
locations and specifying the PATH to that location work so far as running
the Ant CSV tasks are concerned ?? It might work but is it appropriate to do
that.

I mean could the cvs.exe be used just a stand alone portable tool, just like
we place jar files anywhere we like and just specify classpath.

It would be nice if the cvs tasks were rewritten to use a java cvs
implementation rather than the native cvs binary for the os. Is there a java
cvs implementation that is prefered? Thoughts?

Hey Jon,

I am using cvs.exe that comes with WinCVS. Does that make a difference. I
read the discussions abt CVS in the list and those were helpful.

And Matthew, I like you suggestions too.

Keep posting any new Ideas.

This list is awesome. 

Thanks everybody.

Matt

what "CVS.exe" do you have? there are a few available for DOS. we mentioned
it on the list a few weeks back. you may want to do a search on "CVS" in the
archives:
