CVSROOT

Set your CVSROOT environment variable. If possible, set it once and for all using the Windows control panel, autoexec.bat file, or UNIX script executed on login, such as /.cshrc or /.bashrc.

Here's the command line you can use on a Windows 95/NT machine to set up the CVSROOT environment variable. Be sure to put your own username where the example below contains username.

[u:\] set CVSROOT=:pserver:username@interactivate.com:/usr/local/cvs-repository

The few folks who choose to work directly from their interactivate.com UNIX account can relax, the CVSROOT variable is set for you automatically when you log in for a terminal session (like with telnet or ssh). If you are working on a project via a different UNIX box, you'll want to configure the CVSROOT environment variable to point across the Internet to our server.

Here's the command line you can use on a remote UNIX machine with a bash or sh shell to set up the CVSROOT environment variable. Be sure to put your own username where the example below contains username.

$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:username@interactivate.com:/usr/local/cvs-repository

If you use a csh shell or the enhanced c-shell tcsh under UNIX on a remote machine, the CVSROOT environment can be set with a command like this:

% setenv CVSROOT ":pserver:username@interactivate.com:/usr/local/cvs-repository"
