I would like to use cvs2cl to make changelogs for my project, but when I do:
cvs2cl --help I get the following error message:
Can't exec /bin/sh at C:\Datamodeler\trunk\cvs2cl.pl line 1.
I have never fully investigated why, but cvs2cl.pl has problems running on
windows (it may work under cygwin but not with the perl directly under windows).
part of the reason is that the first line is
#!/bin/sh ... which says run the second line under /bin/sh, and windows
usually does not have a /bin/sh, however when you bypass that problem others
seem to creep up.
If you have time to figure out all the problems and mail them to the bug
address, I am sure kfogel (or current maintainer) would like to know.
However, there is a workaround ... someone has made a cvs2cl.py (python
script) and it seems to come with CVSNT or one of the GUIs that ship with
CVSNT. the cvs2cl.py seemed to do the same thing as cvs2cl several versions
back, you may want to check with whoever is maintaining it and see if they are
keeping up with the functionality in cvs2cl.pl. ... anyhow try cvs2cl.py on
your command line and see if it works for you.
It appears that this script is written only for Linux, or am I doing
something wrong here? If I comment the first line out (#!/bin/sh
exec) then I get an error on the second line.
I'm running WinXP.
