Re: CVS and ^M

I ran into the same thing.  We edit the source files on WinXX and the 
repository is on a Linux server.  The ^M of course is generated by the WinXX 
based editor.  The problem we had is every modification triggered a diff of the 
entire file.  That was resolved only by mounting the directory with the sandbox 
in binary mode in cygwin.  cvs is not adding the ^M, the WinXX/DOS editor is or 
cygwin is in text mode.
