No. And, as others have noted, this doesn't scale well; RCS won't replicate your directory structure. CVS does, but it is more cumbersome to use for small projects. If you really want this behaviour, though, just `ln -s ~/RCS` in each directory you wish to share the RCS path. For most applications, though, you're better off with a local RCS directory; it facilitates backups and shared access much better. - Ryan -- Ryan Thompson <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> SaskNow Technologies - http://www.sasknow.com 901-1st Avenue North - Saskatoon, SK - S7K 1Y4 Tel: 306-664-3600 Fax: 306-244-7037 Saskatoon Toll-Free: 877-727-5669 (877-SASKNOW) North America _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
