RE: removing Dir from CVS control

Although what I think he is asking, is that he has a working directory that
contains a subdirectory, and wants to remove the subdirectory from CVS
control so that when in the main working directory, CVS will not try to
recurse into the subdirectory.  Correct?

If this is the case, you can edit the CVS/Entries file of the main
directory, and remove the reference to the subdirectory. You may want to
remove the CVS directories in the new directories too just to be cleaner.
Or a possibly better way might be to do as Matt suggests and use "cvs
export" to create the non-controlled directory.  Either way, if CVS
originally created your working-dir/sub-dir, then y ou will likely need to
edit the working-dir/CVS/Entries file to remove the reference to sub-dir.

If you want a 'snapshot' of a CVS module, use 'cvs export'.
