> Please suggest a way fro using commit -c option in MacCVSX.
Make sure you have CVSNT client installed (2.5.03.2382 preferably) on the
The "obvious" solution is to use the command line which will work just like
The way the "exclusive" edit options are usually used is NOT how you are
Every versioned file in CVSNT has attributes - also called "expansion
options". These are "sticky" - they are propogated from one version of the
file to the next.
So if all your files should always be used in "reserved" mode the "solution"
is to mark them as such: cvs update -k+x cvs commit -f "everything will now
Now when you checkout, edit etc the client will automatically use the
"locking" functions without the need to specify -c or -x on the command line
Oh and the "C" in CVSNT stands for "C" - nothing more or less. CVSNT
supports "Concurrent" as well as "Linear" development and it is a
fundamental difference between this project and others that this project
does not limit what features can and cannot be added to the project (beyond
what could cause corruption).
