CVS support is _not_ separate from VC... I use just plain old 'vc' all
the time with no problems. It's got CVS support all over the place. I've
never really understood what pcl-cvs is for... I think some commercial
variant of CVS.
And as Adrian pointed out, CVS does work under windows. We have
developers here using it from all the Win9* variants as well as Windows
NT. It's a thing of beauty. Fun watching some of the windows guys squirm
because they haven't installed any GUI for it yet and have to actually deal
with the command line once in a while. :)
