Thank you Fredric Brehm and Larry Jones, I'v now got an answer to my question qithout any flamewar *smiles*

I've now got to modifie the generator so that it does not generate the files unless it needs to, that would also solve my problem, but it will take some time to do it, but thank you for answering my question...

I asked for a sollution to MY problem, not to a different problem with how things are set up, so why not ignore why, and how and just answer my problem?


Is it possible for cvs to ignore certain rows in a file when comparing for differences so that I do not have to commit the local file everytime an specific row (date-comment) in the file is changed, or fetch out the last file from the repository...

No, CVS cannot do that.

One way to solve your problem is to use your build system to process the file into another file with some canonical form and store the processed file in the repository. See the way I dealt with the makefile and Makefile.cache for my situation. Use that as a model for your situation.
