'-d' should definitely work as it specifies the directory (in this case a
remote module) that should be pulled. The documentation (in the info pages)
on '-p' say the following:
Pipe the files retrieved from the repository to standard output,
rather than writing them in the current directory. Available with
the `checkout' and `update' commands.
If I were to issue the command:
cvs -d :ext:otherhost:/path/to/cvsroot co -p test
Then it would all be displayed on the console instead of being written to
file. What command would you use to hit a remote system?
I tried the following as well, but get the same result:
$ define CVS_RSH "ssh_exe:ssh2.exe"
$ define CVSROOT ":ext:otherhost:/home/cvs"
$ cvs co -p test
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot fdopen 3 for write: bad file number
Bob, what version of CVS are you running? I'm currently running the only
version that I was able to find online?
Anyone have any ideas what file descriptor three has to do with any of this?
