Other potential solution:

I used VSS Explorer to cloak certain projects.
When I now do a recursive command using the command line
(e.g. ss checkout $Sources/*rc -r), but the cloaked prjects will be cheked out, too.

Any idea or reason?

Hmm, the good ole' command processor should do that:

checkout << list_of_files.txt

or

type list_of_files.txt | checkout

How would the batch look like?

ss checkout -r

will not read anything from stdin, so the input redirection / pipe doesn't work.  (OK, I didn't try, but I'm batch-scripting for a few days now ;o)

What a pity - I do that stuff with CVS/RCS and the scripting with a bash, so I thought it should work...

Ahhh... enlightment comes through pain*

FOR /F %%FILE IN (filelist.txt) DO

Doesn't work on Win 9x, though....

(actually, I found the W2K batch processing quite powerful... so go figure)
