NAME
rcsdiff - compareRCS revisions SYNOPSIS
rev1] rev2] file ... DESCRIPTION
compares two revisions of each given RCS file and creates output very similar to (see diff(1)). A file name ending in is an RCS file name, otherwise it is a working file name. derives the working file name from the RCS file name and vice versa, as explained in rcsintro(5). Pairs consisting of both an RCS and a working file name can also be specified. recognizes the following options: Same as described in diff(1); Same as described in diff(1); Same as described in diff(1); Same as described in diff(1); Generate an edit script of the format used by RCS. Generate a diff with lines of context. The default is to present 3 lines of context. To change, specify n; for example, gives 10 lines of context. modifies the output format slightly from the normal diff(1) output. The ``context'' output begins with identification of the files involved and their creation dates, then each change is separated by a line with a dozen (asterisks). Lines removed from file1 are marked with (dashes); those added to file2 with (pluses). Lines that are changed from one file to the other are marked in both files with (exclamation marks). If both rev1 and rev2 are omitted, compares the latest revision on the trunk with the contents of the corresponding working file. This is useful for determining what was changed since the last check-in. If rev1 is given, but rev2 is omitted, compares revision rev1 of the RCS file with the contents of the corresponding working file. If both rev1 and rev2 are given, compares revisions rev1 and rev2 of the RCS file. Both rev1 and rev2 can be given numerically or symbolically. EXAMPLES
Compare the latest trunk revision of RCS file and the contents of working file Compare the revisions 1.1 and 1.2 in the RCS file AUTHOR

NAME
rcsdiff - compare RCS revisions SYNOPSIS
rcsdiff [ -ksubst ] [ -q ] [ -rrev1 [ -rrev2 ] ] [ -T ] [ -V[n] ] [ -xsuffixes ] [ -zzone ] [ diff options ] file ... DESCRIPTION
rcsdiff runs diff(1) to compare two revisions of each RCS file given. Pathnames matching an RCS suffix denote RCS files; all others denote working files. Names are paired as explained in ci(1). The option -q suppresses diagnostic output. Zero, one, or two revisions may be specified with -r. The option -ksubst affects keyword sub- stitution when extracting revisions, as described in co(1); for example, -kk -r1.1 -r1.2 ignores differences in keyword values when compar- ing revisions 1.1 and 1.2. To avoid excess output from locker name substitution, -kkvl is assumed if (1) at most one revision option is given, (2) no -k option is given, (3) -kkv is the default keyword substitution, and (4) the working file's mode would be produced by co -l. See co(1) for details about -T, -V, -x and -z. Otherwise, all options of diff(1) that apply to regular files are accepted, with the same meaning as for diff. If both rev1 and rev2 are omitted, rcsdiff compares the latest revision on the default branch (by default 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. EXAMPLE
The command rcsdiff f.c compares the latest revision on the default branch of the RCS file to the contents of the working file f.c. ENVIRONMENT
RCSINIT options prepended to the argument list, separated by spaces. See ci(1) for details. DIAGNOSTICS
Exit status is 0 for no differences during any comparison, 1 for some differences, 2 for trouble. IDENTIFICATION
