We have a certain file extension that is binary (*.class), but the

This results in a lot of heartache.  I have been asked if it is
possible to change the default file type for this extension (*.class)
to be binary.

At last, an easy question.

Check out the ${CVSROOT}/CVSROOT/cvswrappers file. Read the comments at the head of the file, and then add a line like this:

*.class -k 'b'

Commit it, and all *.class files will henceforth be marked as binary.

Note that I don't know if the cvswrappers file is checked when the binary files are added or when they are committed, so if you've got some added files in a working directory you might have to remove and re-add them before committing them.
