Re: added text file as binary, want to change it to text

First, see if doing a "cvs admin -kkv" on the file produces meaningful
results for you.  If it doesn't, you'll have to re-add the file under a
different name.  (CVS' remove and add functions recycle the existing
revision history, with all of its RCS attributes preserved.)

If neither of these options pan out, you'll have to remove the ,v file
from the repository by hand and re-add the file.  Note that this option
is your last resort and can potentially break the reproduction of past
releases.  Avoid it if you can, but if you can't then realize that you
will have problems.

A  good day to you all. i accidentally added a text
file as binary, and would like to know if there is a
way i can  readd it as a text file, aside from
removing  it and adding it again as a  text file.
