automatic update


Hi all,

I got a question: my situation is I have to develop documents on my Windows box and then use windows CVS clients to check into a CVS repository on another Linux server. However, I want everything I change can be automatically copied to a new directory on the Linux server, in other words, I hope whenever I check in something, system can automatically copy all new files into another pre-specified directory. I have no ideal how to do that. I thought about something like setup a cron task and check the cvs every minute, but it sounds too stupid and a waste of system resource since I probably only check in no more than three times a day. I thought about rsync but after reading some manual it seems to me I still have to issue a command to start rsync on the rsync client. But I am not gonna login to linux, how can I issue any command?

I sincerely appreciate any help from you.

-Lik

A cron job can be set for once a day if you want, why would it have to be once a minute?

If you're not going to log into Linux, you can't issue a Linux command obviously.

You exact question could be a little clearer. From what I gather, you're working in windoze, not linux, correct?
