CVS does not have an "edit -c" command:

So you must mean CVSNT?

Reading the above page should explain the problem.

In future please direct CVSNT questions to the CVSNT newsgroup:

Note: most GUI's do not support the exclusive edit capabilities so you
are best off marking the files that should be exclusively edited using
"cvs update -k+x" or using the cvswrappers file.

Hello. :0)

I was under the impression that, if one user performs a reserved edit on
a file ("cvs edit -c"), then all other users will be unable to commit
any changes to that file until that user unedits it. However, I am
finding that this is not the case, and that other users are still able
to commit changes. Since these are binary files, and thus cannot be
merged, we definitely do not want more than one person working on the
same file and the same time. Is there any way to acheive this?

Thank you!
