But it doesn't help me. Still the files are checkout as read-only mode

I did not mean that the commands below would fix the issue, only that they might help you and us be sure of what the issue is.

if it is watchers, then you need to first have anyone who _IS_ currently "watching" a file to run `cvs watch remove` then you can start again, IIRC.

We have a CVS where a large no of codes are checked in all the days.
Today files in the ceratain directory alone is checkout as readonly for
the users.
I am sure no specific restriction is applied on these files.
We dont know what is the reason for it. WE are unable to rectify it also.
Any one help us to rectify this problem. How to remove the read-only restriction on these files.


in the directory where these files are read only, try the following
cvs watchers -R

I expect you will find someone has used the `cvs watch` command, I did not think it was supposed to make things RO but it has for me in the past. My solution for folks who wanted to watch files was to make a script that always applied watches as `cvs watch add -a commit filename`, and have them use

or someone may have used `cvs edit` unnecessarily.
