Hi Chuck,

Many thanks!  I now have a patched source and functioning binary, but
how do I actually use the new features?

Is the perl program supposed to act as a wrapper script for the actual
cvs binary?  If so, can you give me an example of how it works?  Or is
there at least some documentation that would tell me how to actually use
the branch locking, so that I could write my own script?

Sorry for pestering with questions, but I'm new to CVS and this feature
just isn't documented.
