Subject Re: cvstagdiff -- rdiff with -kk option in ANT
Date Mon, 29 Sep 2008 16:22:46 GMT

Thanks Stephen.

It looks like the issue is with $LOG$ cvs variable as when I'm running CVS
command on Linux prompt, I'm getting differences between 2 versions of a
file (only due to the keywords i.e. $Revision$, $author etc). 

-kk is solving that (i.e. it's suppressing the keyword expansion while doing
the rdiff or in checkout in case you want to diff), but $LOG$ variable is
still not suppressing. It's a know bug in CVS.
