First, the 'properties.txt' file is now deprecated. Do not use it.

You want to place all properties in "$HOME/jcvsrc.txt", where $HOME
is the 'user.home' directory printed out by jCVS at startup.

Second, you want a property in that file that looks like this:


NOTE the forward slash. If you want to use '\', you must escape
it, as in "C:\\temp", since the properties are read by a class
that processes escapes. However, jCVS will work with the '/'
on all platforms.
