RCSFREEZE(1)                                                      RCSFREEZE(1)



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 configuration.

       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 current 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  com-
       mands.

       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.
