Something is trying to evaluating the argument, resulting in:


being interpreted as an attempt to redirect stdin from a file named

My guess is that something in cvs2cl.pl is constructing a command line
which includes the argument and passing it to the shell, and isn't
quoting it.

Likely culprits would be the use of backticks, qx/.../, or the
one-argument form of the system() function (where the argument is
either a scalar or a single-element array).
