Subject Re: <cvs*> tasks -- how to specify location of cvs.exe
Date Wed, 12 Apr 2006 21:21:46 GMT
Hello Michael,

I can confirm that the cvs task does not let you specify where your 
cvs.exe lies, and it must be found in the path.

By the way, I did some work with the cygwin cvs and ant and it seemed to 
work for me. What I did though were activities which do not write to the 
repository, such as checking out, updating, getting the revision history.

You might want to run your build in verbose mode to see exactly which 
command line arguments ant passes to cvs.exe. May be you will notice 
something which will help you find a solution.
