       cvsaskpass - prompt for a password for the CVS DCOP service


       cvsaskpass [ generic-options ] prompt


       This  utility  displays  a  dialog  box  prompting  the  user  for  the  password to a CVS
       repository, then writes the password to standard output and exits.  You should not need to
       run this program directly - it is designed for the internal use of cvsservice(1).

       The prompt should be of the following form:

              user@host's password:

       This will allow the dialog box to display the details of the CVS repository to the user.

       This  utility  is part of the CVS service provided with Cervisia, which in turn is part of
       the KDE Software Development Kit.


       For a full summary of options, run cvsaskpass --help.


       If a password was succefully obtained, 0 is returned.  If no prompt was  supplied  on  the
       command-line or if the dialog was cancelled, 1 is returned.

       Details  of  how  to  use the CVS service from within another script or C++ program can be
       found in /usr/share/doc/libcvsservice0/DESIGN.
