RE: Where is diff getting its path?

That was the problem. By updating it to
:local:/cygdrive/c/cygwin/home/Mark/src/master that problem goes away.
However, WinCvs now complains thusly:

cvs [diff aborted]: /cygdrive/c/cygwin/home/Mark/src/master/CVSROOT: No such
file or directory

I have tried setting the "Checkout text files with the Unix LF (0xa)" both
ways and removing and rechecking out the directory on the command line
(using cvs version 1.11.2) and the error remains. Someone has recommended
going to another windows-based cvs client. Another has suggested
reinstalling WinCvs with line feeds set to DOS mode in cygwin (not sure how
to do that). Any thoughts?

What's in C:\ensignWork\ESPL\CVS\Root?
