This is a shell question - not a CVS question.

in a shell variables are expanded in strings with double (") quotes but not
expanded in strings with single (') quotes.

I suspect you want to do this:

        cvs commit -m 'Changed initial value of $my_var'

Different shells (bash/tcsh/perl?) behave differently.

You need the appropriate beating up so here goes :
        "Please direct your questions to the $SHELL news group"

Good luck

Hi All,

My first post and new to CVS. Please don't beat me up.....

My question, am I not allowed to do the following?

   cvs commit -m "Changed initial value of $my_var"

I would like $my_var to print out as is.
