RE: Forcing DOS line endings on checkout/update

So were talking about either modifying the CVS source code, or linking to a
modified library......right?

I have a hard time believing that no one else has needed this feature
before. I'm surprised that there isn't some environmental variable that you
can just set, like 'CVS_ENV=DOS' which would setup the end of line modes.

Any ideas on the safest way to set this up without modifying CVS or the
libraries that it is linked to?  Has anybody else run up against this issue?
