NAME
sccstorcs - build RCS file from SCCS file SYNOPSIS
sccstorcs [-t] [-v] s.file ... DESCRIPTION
Sccstorcs builds an RCS file from each SCCS file argument. The deltas and comments for each delta are preserved and installed into the new RCS file in order. Also preserved are the user access list and descriptive text, if any, from the SCCS file. The following flags are meaningful: -t Trace only. Prints detailed information about the SCCS file and lists the commands that would be executed to produce the RCS file. No commands are actually executed and no RCS file is made. -v Verbose. Prints each command that is run while it is building the RCS file. FILES
For each s.somefile, Sccstorcs writes the files somefile and somefile,v which should not already exist. Sccstorcs will abort, rather than overwrite those files if they do exist. SEE ALSO

All diagnostics are written to stderr. Non-zero exit status on error. BUGS
Sccstorcs does not preserve all SCCS options specified in the SCCS file. Most notably, it does not preserve removed deltas, MR numbers, and cutoff points. AUTHOR

NAME
rcsdiff - compare RCS revisions SYNOPSIS
rcsdiff [ -biwt ] [ -cefhn ] [ -rrev1 ] [ -rrev2 ] file ... DESCRIPTION
Rcsdiff runs diff (1) to compare two revisions of each RCS file given. A file name ending in ',v' is an RCS file name, otherwise a working file name. Rcsdiff derives the working file name from the RCS file name and vice versa, as explained in co (1). Pairs consisting of both an RCS and a working file name may also be specified. All options except -r have the same effect as described in diff(1). If both rev1 and rev2 are omitted, rcsdiff compares the latest revision on the trunk with the contents of the corresponding working file. This is useful for determining what you changed since the last checkin. If rev1 is given, but rev2 is omitted, rcsdiff compares revision rev1 of the RCS file with the contents of the corresponding working file. If both rev1 and rev2 are given, rcsdiff compares revisions rev1 and rev2 of the RCS file. Both rev1 and rev2 may be given numerically or symbolically. EXAMPLES
The command rcsdiff f.c runs diff on the latest trunk revision of RCS file f.c,v and the contents of working file f.c. IDENTIFICATION
