I think i had not made myself clear. i need this merging functionality only
as part of another bigger project where i have the text documents as return
values of some c++ functions. if i save the text as files i am loosing
efficiency. so i think i will have to use some cvs functions directly rather
than the cvs commands. do i clarify myself now? Any further help is greatly
