Well, you can use  cvs admin -k<flags>  on the existing files, but is it
possible there's some systematic problem which caused the files to get
created -kb? (Or was it just a user error?)

        cvs admin -kkv <not-really-binary-file>

This is one of those commands that can be done recursively, so be
carefule not to undo the <really-a-binary> files...

We've just discovered that someone checked in or changed a whole slew of
files in our CVS tree to be handled as binary files when, in fact, none
of these files are binary at all. This has caused us to not be able to
diff, merge, etc. - which is obviously a major problem. I want to know
if there is any method of disabling the binary flags on these files in
CVS. Does anyone know of a relatively easy method of doing this type of
