Trying to do cvs updates inside back accent environments


#1

I am unable to do: cd somewhere ; cvs update

because it doesn’t like the cd, and possibly not the ;. I also get a
strange
blowup when I do:

		`cvs update somewhere`

where it says: Protocol error: ’
Protocol error: ‘Directory’ missingE Protocol error: ‘Directory’
missingE

and on and on…

Can you please suggest something. I need to make this work, and I’m not
finding it obvious in any way.

Off the top of my head: User full paths for the cvs binary and the
target file or directory

Dir.chdir, preferably with a block.
e.g:
irb(main):001:0> Dir.pwd
=> “/Users/logan/Projects/Ruby Experiments”
irb(main):002:0> Dir.chdir("/") { puts Dir.pwd; ls }
/
=> “Applications\nApplications (Mac OS 9)\nDesktop DB\nDesktop DF
\nDesktop Folder\nDeveloper\nLibrary\nNetwork\nPrevious Systems
\nSystem\nSystem Folder\nTheVolumeSettingsFolder\nUser Guides And
Information\nUsers\nVolumes\nautomount\nbin\ncores\ndev\netc\nmach
\nmach.sym\nmach_kernel\nprivate\nsbin\nsw\ntmp\nusr\nvar\n”
irb(main):003:0> Dir.pwd
=> “/Users/logan/Projects/Ruby Experiments”

So in your case you would use:
cvs_output = Dir.chdir(“somewhere”) { cvs update }
