Hi, I'm new to version control software.

I read in the docs that CVS has some difficulty in dealing with binaries... yet the only example given deals with keywords.

I'm not sure I need keywords anyway. I want to do CVS on our vendor supplied source with our mods, and I don't *need* to have keywords in our scripts auto-updated by cvs. If I just globally turn this functionality off, will binaries work fine?

I'd prefere not to turn them off on a file by file basis because, well, there are thousands of files. I'd hate to do an initial check in by hand.

Though maybe I could write a script to do the check-in manually for me...
