Supports CVS 1.6 and newer and provides search facilities for the modules database, file browser, etc. Includes tkdiff for comparing versions of files. Requires TkDiff to be installed. Has been tested under Linux v1.2.13/CVS 1.6/Tk 4.0 and SunOS v4.1.3/CVS 1.2-6/Tk 4.0. See the Cyclic site for a port of tkCVS to Windows NT. The Rubicon site has a document describing the use of tkCVS for version control. Contact mailto:[email protected] regarding a patched version of tkCvs for Windows. Currently at version 8.2.3.

I have received a few queries about running TKCVS on Windows XP so here is a quick guide to preparing the XP environment. 1. Install CVSNT client. CVS NT is available from http://www.cvsnt.org. The client component installs the CVS windows native command line environment utilized by TKCVS. 2. Install Active State Tcl Run Time. Available from http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActiveTcl/. 3. Install Microsoft services for unix. Available from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/sfu/default.asp. Supported by Microsoft, preferred by Corporates and free. Install the unix command line component. Provides unix command capability from the windows command shell. E.G. supplies diff.exe. 4. Install TKCVS. Install latest version of TKCVS. Create desktop and start button shortcuts. The working directory and module browser icons do not display properly under XP. I changed the working directory icon as follows. Navigate to TKCVS install dir C:\TKCVS72\lib\tkcvs\bitmaps\. Convert ticklefish_med.gif to ticklefish_med.ico. package require Tk package require Img image create photo img -file ticklefish_med.gif img write ticklefish_med.ico -format ico Navigate to C:\TKCVS72\lib\tkcvs\workdir.tcl Edit line 36: wm iconbitmap .workdir C:/TKCVS72/lib/tkcvs/bitmaps/ticklefish_med.ico Working directory browser now displays with fish icon.

PT 2-Aug-2004: Alternatively you can install TortoiseCVS from http://tortoisecvs.sourceforge.net/ which integrates CVS file versioning directly into Windows Explorer. It supports SSH and is trivial to use with SourceForge. If you also get PuTTY's pageant [L3 ] (equivalent to the unix ssh-agent) then you don't have to keep typing passwords either.
Personally I have never needed Unix Services for Windows. There are native win32 versions of cvs, diff, patch and even ssh (although putty's plink is more useful [L4 ]). Try [L5 ] for a bunch of them.
