Actually, I thought I would need to use both pserver and ssh.  ssh for my
personal CVS usage, and pserver for when CVS is executed only as a reader
from within a script.  (The script will be used to automatically update a
web site with files contained in CVS)

Can you tell me what is the best and/or most common way to call CVS from
within a shell script so that the user running the script isn't required to
type in a password?  Or is there a way one might be able feed CVS the
password from within the script?

Thanks again,
