Find attached a perl program for changing CVS server.

It was written to change from a machine called
to  I also changed the path on the repository
from /usr/local/repository to /cvs/controls.  Some of the checkouts had full
path names in the Repository file which started with /usr/local/repository,
this script strips that off the path to make it relative to the one in Root.

You will have to change the names and paths, but variations of this have been
used to move repositories several times.  You *must* test it thoroughly and
back up your checkouts before running it.  Users either need Perl installed,
or if you are using windows you can buy the ActiveState PerlDev kit to turn it
into a .exe
