My attempts to fix the bizarre 'function object code gets partially overwritten by garbage in middle of execution' bug on Cygwin, have turned up that the bug is even more bizarre than I thought originally. I thought I'd blame it on some bad array index in some C code. But the object code for the function gets partially overwritten before main is called at all. Now I am really, really puzzled.
dwmw2: If you're sharing the repository on every single line you change, sure. But if you prefer to work locally with the copy in your own versioning system until your changes stabilize, then the RCS tags differ in not very meaningful ways.
I've never used -ko to import text sources, so feel free to call me a veggie ;) Isn't the effect that CVS treats the file as binary? I wouldn't want to have large, whole file diffs, on each checkin on the imported files if I'm tracking another project's progress in my CVS. But hey, I admit that I haven't read the Cederquist yet, so I may be completely wrong ;)
