RE: error with checkout

You are correct, it is passing "cvs co -d . -d /home/sc env/homer"

Perhaps what I want to do can't be done, I was sure it could though.  I've
got files that I don't want in a directory when they are checked out from
CVS (e.g. .cshrc).  I want them dumped in the $HOME directory not in a
directory $HOME/HOMER_ENV.  

I've tried many different configurations because I thought the only way to
get the file without having it placed in a directory was to use the -d flag.

I've read the modules section in the cederqvist and I'm out of ideas.  Any

assuming that with your shell `echo HOMER_ENV` gives "-d /home/sc env/homer"
opposed to "HOMER_ENV".
wouldn't this mean what you are passing cvs looks like
cvs co -d . -d /home/sc env/homer
cvs co -d . -d /home/sc env/pilot

which means you are passing two -d options and you are attempting to check
two different modules, does env/homer exist in $CVSROOT ?

suggestion, run the commands and paste the exact command and error messages
your email, the above information looks suspiciously like you typed
like the command you are using.  And what does your $CVSROOT look like? (be
sure to X out any passwords).  you are using the same pserver $CVSROOT from
both shells aren't you?

I'd crawl over an acre of 'Visual This++' and 'Integrated Development
That' to get to gcc, Emacs, and gdb.  Thank you.
