I don't think it is a size issue. A tar.gz file is a binary file. I
would verify that you added/imported this file using the -kb options to
ignore keyword expansion on checkouts, etc. See
http://ximbiot.com/cvs/manual/cvs-1.11.7/cvs_9.html#SEC80 for more
information on binary files. Hope this answers, or at least assists,
Also, this is a CVS list, not a WinCVS or CVSNT list. So I am
approaching your question from a CVS standpoint only.

Subject: WinCVS/CVSNT choking on large tar.gz files during
I just wanted to post an observation that I have made with WinCVS
220.127.116.11 (Build 4).
I have a large source tree (~1.5 GB) that I am trying to import using
WinCVS. The source code resides on a Linux 2.4 machine, while my CVSNT
server is on a Windown Server 2003 box.
I have noticed that when I try to import a tar.gz file that is larger
than ~184 MB I cannot subsequently check that file out without receiving
an "Invalid Argument" error. Due to this I have had to keep these large
tar-balls separate from CVS (not something that I am particularily happy
Has anyone else observed this issue? If so, is there a known solution?
