16 <p><a href="../../glossary/glossary.htm#cvs_vc" target="_blank">CVS</a> defines
17 the concept of <i>module</i>, which is a top-level directory in a CVS
18 repository.&nbsp; Although in the repository structure utilized by the ESRG tool
19 set there is some interdependency between modules (for example, the <a href="../../glossary/glossary.htm#installshield_express" target="_blank">InstallShield
20 Express</a> Windows® installation obtains files from several modules), for the
21 most part modules are separate entities.</p>
22 <p>On this web page, all CVS modules are enumerated and what they contain is
23 explained.</p>
24 <p>All but two of the ESRG tool set distribution files are built on a <a href="http://sourceforge.net">SourceForge</a>
25 *nix machine, and some of those distribution files are designed to be
26 decompressed and used on Windows® machines.&nbsp; In order to prepare text
27 files that are Windows®-friendly, the <i>unix2dos</i> utility is used to
28 convert line endings.&nbsp; In order to convert only text files, there must be
29 an easy way to differentiate text files.&nbsp; The convention adopted is to make
30 sure that every text file has a suffix (binary files may be without suffix), and
31 to recognize text files by the suffix.&nbsp; Furthermore, it is observed that
32 the suffixes which denote text files may vary from module to module, and so
33 there may be different recognition criteria for each module.&nbsp; The table
34 below lists the suffixes that cause a file to be recognized as a text file, on a
35 per-module basis.</p>

137 <p><b><u>Additional Notes:</u></b></p>
138 <ol>
139 <li>The most reliable way to determine whether a file is text or binary is to
140 check the CVS keyword expansion mode, which should in all cases be
141 indicative (any mode other than &quot;<i>b</i>&quot; would indicate a text
142 file).&nbsp; If there prove to be difficulties with the current approach,
143 then this more powerful approach will be used.</li>
144 <li>Even if it is indicated above that files in a module are not intended to
145 be used on a Windows® platform, this refers only to the distribution
146 intent, not to the possibility of using the files.&nbsp; <i>Any</i>
147 text or binary file under CVS can be checked out to a Windows®
148 system.</li>
