questions about watch/notify

I want to have CVS notify me when someone else edits a file I'm editing,
but also to notify the other editor that I am already doing so.  I can't
find a way to do this, so the first question is, have I missed something?

Assuming I hadn't, I wrote a little perl script to do it for me, but now
I can't manage to implement it.

When I commit the notify file, CVS inserts extra text into my line, so

ALL myscript $RCSfile$ %s


ALL myscript $RCSfile: notify,v$ %s

and this generates an error as $RCSfile: doesn't exist.

So my second question is, is this the right way to be doing this, and if
so how do I prevent CVS from corrupting my command line?  It changes all
occurrences of $RCSfile$ in the file.

Thanks in advance
