Re: cvs checkout produces read-only files

        I'm trying to get my source code into CVS but whenever I try and
get it back with cvs checkout, files are read-only, ie.

   518: mkdir cvsTest
   519: cd cvsTest
   520: vi README
   521: ls -l
total 4
-rw-r--r--   1 sean     users           5 Feb 27 23:47 README
   522: cvs import -m "Start of cvsTest" cvsTest spth start
N cvsTest/README

No conflicts created by this import

   523: cd ..
   524: rm -rf cvsTest
removed cvsTest
   525: cvs checkout cvsTest
cvs checkout: Updating cvsTest
U cvsTest/README
   526: cd cvsTest/
   527: ls -l
total 8
drwxr-xr-x   2 sean     users        4096 Feb 27 23:49 CVS/
-r--r--r--   1 sean     users           5 Feb 27 23:48 README

        So why is it now read-only when all the examples in the various
docs show the files coming out as they went in?

Sean -

Not sure, but check your CVS_READ environment variable.

In any case, I'd recommend leaving it and using cvs edit to indicate which files you want to work on.
