NAME
       rcs-checkin - check files into RCS

SYNOPSIS
       rcs-checkin [FILE...]

DESCRIPTION
       rcs-checkin is a helper script for checking files into RCS.  This program is distributed with GNU Emacs.

       This  program  converts files with an old Emacs-style version history for use with the Emacs 19 version control
       interface VC, which likes to use RCS as its back end.

       For each file to be processed, 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.  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.

       In order to make it easier to use rcs-checkin *, files which are detectably either RCS masters (with names end-
       ing in ,v) or Emacs version files (with names containing ~) are ignored.


OPTIONS
       The program accepts no options.

SEE ALSO
       The Emacs version control interface is documented in the GNU Emacs manual, which  you  can  read   using  Info,
       either from Emacs or as a standalone program.
