CVS is THE DE-FACTO standard. It is used by ALL significant
open source software efforts.
The ONLY version control I would accept in IDL would
be hooks in IDLDE to work with CVS.
In my opinion, it is a MS conspiracy that products like
VC++ and Borland have hooks to commercial software
like Perforce and MS version control, but not CVS. Then again.... by
of this writing they ARE supporting CVS... I dunno.
