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

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.
