Hi Ed,

You can update your .cvsrc file in your home directory to include "cvs -d
$CVSROOT" and i think that will include it by default in all operations.

The default behaviour is useful for people like me who connect to multiple
repositories, and so don't want to have to change the CVSROOT variable every
time we work on a different folder.

Ah.  I see this can be done with 'cvs -d $CVSROOT login', 'cvs -d $CVSROO=
update', etc.  Would it break other things in CVS for commands to pay=20
attention to the $CVSROOT setting without the user having to specify it o=
the command line?
