Eclipse bug

[ #10130 ]
I like Eclipse. I don't use it as my primary editor most of the time, but it's great for viewing and/or checking out cvs repositories. If you're a Java programmer, you get lots more goodies, too (I'm not, though).

Tonight I found a bug (feature?). Using the "check out as project option" won't bring down empty directories. Annoying. I need to check to see if anyone has already pointed this out. Hopefully, it's not a case of a designer trying to guess "what I want".

  • Isn't that the default CVS behaviour? I can't seem to remember precisely, but I know there are some nasty defaults and that I've had problems with empty directories. At any rate I'm certain that it's a CVS-level option, and if Eclipse gives you access to those then you can change it.

    • Dang - you're right. According to the cvs docs I have, the -P (prune) option is *always* passed to cvs export (which is what I think "checkout as project" does). I haven't figured out if there's a config option I can use to override this behavior.

      The manual actually suggests putting a dummy file in the directory, which doesn't bode well for me. I'm also not sure how fine my control is with CVS within Eclipse.

      /me investigates further.
