Hello Frans,
It is simple. You can start with www.wincvs.org for some Windows tools.
If you really want to get into it, a book on CVS is also recommend - there
a new book on it. I have it at home but do not remember the exact title now.

Best regards,

  Hello Mike

  You are taking about CVS. Do you have any information on how to set up the
CVS on a windows 2000 machine?
  Is it simple?

  Does it exists any package that sets up the CVS on a W2k-machine?

    Hello All,

    In response to Paul's message, my initial thought would be that it would
be best to
    crate a branch for this in the CVS for Proj4. This is the way we do this
kind of thing in
    my company, and it makes the management easy. It definitely makes it
easy to check for differences
    and such, and once the work is complete and tested, it can easily be
merged into the main branch
    by the maintainer. This also allows the maintainer to make changes in
the main branch that do not get lost
    in the final merge.

    I don't have any experience at this time with the Proj4 or
remotesensing.org CVS conventions,
    so I don't know if this is a reasonable approach in the circumstances.

    Of course, Frank Warmerdam must be in agreement (and maybe create the
inital brnaching).

      Hello All,
      I wish to report that the initial part of my work on the Proj4
      library is ready. This initial part involves mainly removing the
      and some of the #defines.
      Unfortunately, the proj4 mailing list has no file section like the
      lists being hosted on yahoo.groups so I do not know where to upload

      I could send the files to anyone interested in testing the results,
and I
      to post them to the related mailing lists file sections like the GDAL
      list so that all can download it.

      Please I really need your support to complete this work. I have not
      started using the library in my projects and therefore cannot provide
      testing, please help. Simply use it as the previous and see if there
is any
      There is no expected change, since the work so far is all about
removing the
      macros to make the codes more readable.

      I am working on Windows and have created VC++6.0 workspace for the
      library. The workspace has
      1. proj4 DLL project
      2. proj4 static library project
      3. projects for all the utility programs like cs2cs, proj etc. The
         are linked to the static library.
      4. A simple console test program, which uses the DLL version.
      I have attached a screenshot to show the workspace. I hope this will
make it
      easier to Windows users with VC++6.0 to play with the sources.

      The "zipped" workspace is about 286 KB.

      The output of the projects are created in a subfolder/directory, named

      I have left the macros still in the sources - only commented them out.
      After enough test, I will remove all.

      Another request, please can you send me some test programs and data.
It can
      be the proj.exe command line for various projections you use, some
      the expected output. These will help me test most of the projections.
      fact, any
      other help will be very much appreciated.

      Please write directly to me if possible.
