Restoring the Project Revision Control System
The Project Revision Control System (PRCS) had been unmaintained for a while to the point where we can no longer build it or run it due to its dependencies on older software.
While writing a repository converter, the maintainer needs a working prcs command to retrieve information from PRCS repositories. That is why this work has been started.
The major issues were as follows:
- It assumed GNU RCS 5.7 and did not work with any newer versions.
- It was written using classic C++ classes and methods that are no longer available.
