This is going to sound dumb, but I don't have an "info" command on my system. Typing "info cvsclient" just confuses my machine.
Could someone for whom this command works possibly redirect the output into a text file, gzip it, and attach it to a post to me?

The cvs client protocol is defined in the info pages that come
with CVS.  "info cvsclient"

This is very true, there is no C version of LibCVS currently.  As
Derek stated not so long ago, a C library to CVS is a project
looking for someone with the skills and the time.

If you do start work on it, I'm sure the people at info-cvs would
also be glad to hear about it, and probably have lots of 2c to add.
