CVS (code management system) unable to checkout unicode file
Posted on 2006-10-20
I'm getting the following checkout error message from CVS (code management system) when attempting to check out an entire branch:
cvs [checkout aborted]: unrecognized operation '\xffffffef' in E:/cvsrepo/CurRepository/DB Script.sql,v
This is occurring with all the unicode files in my repository.
An additional twist: These files have been "removed" and that removal committed through CVS.
When i check out the files through WinCVS everything checks out correctly (those files are not there) but when i do it through the command line they are there.
So my question is, does anyone know how to do a checkout/update that does not pull files that are deleted?
Does anyone know how to get CVS to check out all unicode files without having problems?
