I am the same, guess I come from the GUI generation <g>
[Which probably means I learned to write code on Windows]
I had no problem bringing down the boost libraries through WinCVS
though. I simply copy/pasted the 2 commands given with the SourceForge
docs into the Admin | Command line box. I don't care so much what they
did (I can work this out if necessary) but from now on I can snchronize
with a single click, and never need visit the command line options again
As Dave says, I am missing a lot of the power of CVS hiding behind the
GUI, but for now I am not desperately missing those features either.
Maybe if I needed write access?
