Nowadays most people use CVS, which can be thought of as a wrapper to RCS (and actually was implemented this way at first IIRC). It does not have exclusive locking like RCS does, but for most scenarios this is not a problem. If the way it handles conflicts is acceptable to you, this would be a good resource to learn about it: http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/ -- Dan Pelleg _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
