Thanks for the info. I did mean the CVS binary corrupting.

It is good the hear that the file can be salvage by hand if required. Would
it be just as easy if the file is a binary?

Well, if files in the repository are corrupted, it will not help to
reinstall CVS. You'll need to try to salvage them somehow, or restore
them from backup.

If you mean the CVS binary or installation is somehow corrupted, remember
that every file in the repository is an RCS file, so you can access the
file with RCS as well as CVS ( you could even put a file together
by hand if you wanted, the format isn't difficult to parse ).
