RCSFREEZE(1L)															     RCSFREEZE(1L)

NAME
rcsfreeze - freeze a configuration of sources checked in under RCS SYNOPSIS
rcsfreeze [symbolic revision name] DESCRIPTION
The rcsfreeze command has the purpose of assigning a symbolic revision number to a set of RCS files, which form a valid configuration. The idea is to run rcsfreeze each time a new version is checked in. A unique symbolic revision number (C_number, where number is increased each time rcsfreeze is run) is then assigned to the most recent revision of each RCS file of the main trunk. If the command is invoked with an argument, then this argument is used as the symbolic name to freeze a configuration. The unique identi- fier is still generated and is listed in the log file but it will not appear as part of the symbolic revision name in the actual RCS files. A log message is requested from the user which is saved for future references. The shell script works only on all RCS files at one time. It is important that all changed files are checked in (there are no precautions against any error in this respect). Run rcsclean(1L) first and see whether any sources remain in the current directory. FILES
[RCS/]rcsfreeze.version for the version number [RCS/]rscfreeze.log for the log messages, most recent log message first. AUTHOR

The program does not check whether there are any sources checked out and modified. Purdue University RCSFREEZE(1L)

A unique symbolic name (C_number, where number is increased each time rcsfreeze is run) is then assigned to the most recent revision of each RCS file of the main trunk. An optional name argument to rcsfreeze gives a symbolic name to the configuration. The unique identifier is still generated and is listed in the log file but it will not appear as part of the symbolic revision name in the actual RCS files. A log message is requested from the user for future reference. The shell script works only on all RCS files at one time. All changed files must be checked in already.

RCS/.rcsfreeze.ver version number RCS/.rcsfreeze.log log messages, most recent first AUTHOR

co(1), rcs(1), rcsclean(1), rlog(1) BUGS
rcsfreeze does not check whether any sources are checked out and modified. Although both source file names and RCS file names are accepted, they are not paired as usual with RCS commands. Error checking is rudimentary. rcsfreeze is just an optional example shell script, and should not be taken too seriously. See CVS for a more complete solution. GNU
