@cindex What is clearcase?

@code{clearcase} is a Configuration Management System of Rational
Software Corporation written by @email{esler@@rational.com, Kevin
Esler}.

The @code{clearcase} package described here supports ClearCase version
control from within the @code{XEmacs} editor.

@enumerate

@item

Make sure you're using Gnu Emacs-20.4 or XEmacs-21.1 or later.

Make sure that you DON'T load old versions of vc-hooks.el which contain
incompatible versions of the tq package (functions tq-enqueue and
friends). In particular, Bill Sommerfeld's VC/CC integration has this
problem.

@item

Insert this in your emacs startup file:
(unless (noninteractive)
  (require 'clearcase))

@end enumerate

When you begin editing in any view-context, a ClearCase menu will appear
and ClearCase Minor Mode will be activated for you.
