Ah, that is where I was fooled. Now I recall that "module" has a special
meaning to CVS which I normally don't associate with the term.
Is the "folder" a full path or is it just a folder name under the CVS HOME
directory ? When I put a full path, I get "can not find module 'c:\MyPath'".
Ditto for a folder name under the CVS HOME directory.
What an incredible program ! I am sure it works somehow, but it just can't
be as hard as I am encountering, or else thousands of programmers wouldn't
be using it.
