Download the demo and try it out – it’s free, and it’s the best way to get a feel for what MEW can do for you.

Having said that, I don’t know of a good way to exclude the CVS directory from the File Search/Replace functionality. However, the CVS directories typically only contain CVS admin files, which aren’t likely to match the filemask you’re searching and replacing on anyway. Since there are only half a dozen or so admin files, it’s not a huge performance burden to open the directory and realize nothing matches, and move on.

MEW is also clever enough that if your file contains something like:

[code:15ht1f8k]#include "h/header.h"[/code:15ht1f8k]

that it won’t do much searching to find header.h – it uses the relative path information the same way the compiler would, to go straight to it.
