[cvsnt] linefeed expected: got 13

Do you mean to say that I run "unix2dos" on the repository(on Unix server) before I move it on to the windows server ?

Actually we get the repository files from external vendor.So we ran the "dos2unix" command on windows server repository files.
After everything is working fine except java script repository files.When we checkout the java script files,it throw the
"cvs [server aborted]: unrecognized operation '\x76'" error message.Could you please tell me how to fix this issue?

On the Unix end can you run "unix2dos" on the repository files, and then send those converted files over to your Unix server? 

One word of caution, if you try this, which you might already know:
you'll want to redirect the output of the "unix2dos" to another file (probably another directory tree entirely) to leave your original data untouched.

I have moved the CVS_ROOT from a Unix server to a windows server.

When I try to check out from the windows CVS server, using a tag I get "cvs [server aborted]: linefeed expected in (got 13)" error.

Is there a utility available to convert the Unix format files to dos format ?
