NAME
       rcsfreeze - freeze a configuration of sources checked in under RCS

SYNOPSIS
       rcsfreeze [name]

DESCRIPTION
       rcsfreeze  assigns a symbolic revision number to a set of RCS files that form a valid con-
       figuration.

       The idea is to run rcsfreeze each time a new version is checked	in.   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.  Run rcsclean(1) first and see whether any sources remain in the cur-
       rent directory.

FILES
       RCS/.rcsfreeze.ver
	      version number

       RCS/.rcsfreeze.log
	      log messages, most recent first

ENVIRONMENT
       RCSINIT
	      Options prepended to the argument list, separated by spaces.  A  backslash  escapes
	      spaces  within  an option.  The RCSINIT options are prepended to the argument lists
	      of most RCS commands.  Useful RCSINIT options include -q, -V, -x, and -z.

       RCS_MEM_LIMIT
	      An integer lim, measured in kilobytes, specifying the threshold  under  which  com-
	      mands  will  try	to use memory-based operations for processing the RCS file.  (For
	      RCS files of size lim kilobytes or  greater,  RCS  will  use  the  slower  standard
	      input/output routines.)  Default value is 256.

       TMPDIR Name  of	the  temporary	directory.  If not set, the environment variables TMP and
	      TEMP are inspected instead and the first value found is taken; if none of them  are
	      set, a host-dependent default is used, typically /tmp.

       The full documentation for RCS is maintained as a Texinfo manual.  If the info(1) and  RCS
       programs are properly installed at your site, the command

	      info rcs

       should give you access to the complete manual.  Additionally, the RCS homepage:

	      http://www.gnu.org/software/rcs/

       has news and links to the latest release, development site, etc.

BUGS
       rcsfreeze does not check whether any sources are checked out and modified.

       Although  both  working 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.
