I have been using CVS successfully to maintain source code on a Linux based CVS
server. The files have been edited with DOS applications and have CR, LF record
terminators. The local source is on a Linux Samba share so it has been easy to
use the Linux client CVS to commit, update with. So far so good. But, one of
our programmers does not have Linux, so cygwin seemed natural. However, "cvs
diff" thinks the whole files have changed, except for any file not "touched".
After a "cvs update" or "cvs checkout", there is no problem. However, even
after only a "touch" without modification (only modification time changed), cvs
I have tried many remedies found in Usenet archives without success. Any
insight will be appreciated.
