xemacs-beta / lib-src / rcs-checkin

#! /bin/sh

# This script accepts any number of file arguments and checks them into RCS.
#
# Arguments which are detectably either RCS masters (with names ending in ,v)
# or Emacs version files  (with names of the form foo.~<number>~) are ignored.
# For each file foo, the script looks for Emacs version files related to it.
# These files are checked in as deltas, oldest first, so that the contents of
# the file itself becomes the latest revision in the master.
#
# The first line of each file is used as its description text.  The file itself
# is not deleted, as under VC with vc-keep-workfiles at its default of t, but
# all the version files are.
#
# If an argument file is already version-controlled under RCS, any version 
# files are added to the list of deltas and deleted, and then the workfile
# is checked in again as the latest version.  This is probably not quite
# what was wanted, and is the main reason VC doesn't simply call this to
# do checkins.
#
# This script is intended to be used to convert files with an old-Emacs-style
# version history for use with VC (the Emacs 19 version-control interface),
# which likes to use RCS as its back end.  It was written by Paul Eggert
# and revised/documented for use with VC by Eric S. Raymond, Mar 19 1993.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
