Dear Charles Wilson,
I'm a cygwin user and I have problems using CVS. I'm trying to use the
following command fron cygwin:

those files for READ in binary mode (that is, not translating the '^M's
But it doesn't.
I mean, cvs opens those files in the appropriate mode, stripping away
the '^M's as far as I can tell. I'm going to need more information.
