RE: [cdt-dev] character encoding problems

Note that the headless build of CDT won't know about any encoding preferences from the workspace or project preferences.  For headless build purposes, you can set the default encoding to use for a project, or set custom encodings per file or folder in the project's file.  See the javacDefaultEncoding and javacCustomEncodings properties here:

RE: [cdt-dev] character encoding problems

Changing the encoding of a CVS repository location

"The encoding does not affect the contents of file."

I don't think that the encoding problems were caused by CVS
I suppose, CVS handles all text files transparently as byte stream
the need to encode/decode.
