This script goes through a CVS repository looking for the CVS "author"
headers with a username with a space in it and changes that space to an
underscore. WinCVS 1.2 evidently allows usernames with spaces which gives
the python rcsparse script (which cvs2svn uses) heartburn.

This conversion method was chosen to not change the length of the file.

This is just a first version of this script and I'm sure it can be
improved upon but it seems to have worked for my purposes.

#! /bin/sh
# Put a "_" character in between any entry with double strings in the CVS/RCS
# file "author" fields. Evidently WinCVS allows incorrect author names.
# This changes the file in such a way that there is no change in file size.
# Example: Change "author David_Summers;" to "author David_Summers;"
# *** Note: Make *SURE* you run this on a COPY of the repository and not the
# repository itself until you are ABSOLUTELY SURE that it doesn't do anything
# bad.

# Hack around strangeness in PERL
export C

# Do the dastardly deed.
find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 perl -pi -e 's/author\s+(\w+)\s(\w+);/author
exit 0
