In this case, I'd import a blank project, and then use "cvs add" in a script to add the
files, using the -kb option accordingly. Here's a c-shell pseudo-code
# Assume *.h and *.cpp files are text files, and the rest are binary files...
for f in `find .`; then
    if [ -f $f ]; then
        # found a file, test if binary
        if [ $f == *.h || $f == *.cpp ]; then
           # add binary file
           cvs add -kb $f;
           # add text file
           cvs add $f;
       if [ -d $f ]; then
          # add directory
          cvs add $f;
 You get the idea. Gurus may have a better solution though....

This is a first time user question.

We have collected all of our source files within a directory structure and are ready to initialize the cvs
repository.  There are a couple thousand files.  Roughly 20% are binary type files and are scattered
around throughout various directories.

My original plan was to run the cvs init command from the topmost directory and be done.  However,
I now believe its not that simple, as the binary files(only) must be initialized with the -kb option.  
Is that correct? If so, any suggestions on the simplest/easiest to go about this?
