Re: Does remote checkout support -d ?

Wait a minute...

You're saying that the -d parameter to checkout is SUPPOSED to override cvsroot
in c/s mode????

I thought it was only supposed to do that if it came BEFORE the command:

cvs checkout -d foo bar


cvs -d foo checkout bar

In local mode, the first will checkout bar into the directory d, using whatever
cvsroot you have in your environment.  The second will checkout bar, using the
cvsroot of foo.

You're saying that c/s is not supposed to work that way???  Please help me grok
how that can be logical, as it really sounds like a plain old bug.
