Why would that be better than putting it in your ~/.cvsrc file?

It wouldn't.  I just missed that part in the documentation... ,-)

Darn.  I was hoping somebody else would hack that.  :)

As a workaround, you might consider `cvs -z9' as a line in your `~/.cvsrc'. There's always `alias cvs="cvs -z9"' too.

Thanks.  The alias option doesn't work when you invoke cvs from a
Makefile (which is what I do in some circumstances).

In a makefile, you could always call CVS as ${CVS}, then set `CVS=cvs -z9' at the top of the Makefile like you'd set CC or SED or whatever. If you change your mind about what paramaters you should be calling CVS with later you can just change the one varaiable then too. Take a look at the CVS Makefiles if you need an example.

It is surely time for men to think for themselves, and to throw off the
authority of names so artificially magnified.
