I know who you're talking about. And I'll bet he just loves
It took me quite a while to get the hang of ClearCase but I was growing to
like it by the end of my time at Level3 (time to leave...).
Does ClearCase work with anything but Solaris? I was talking to my current
boss and he reckons it needs a patched kernel in order to do funky stuff
with the file system.
My main beef with CVS (and ClearCase) is that there doesn't seem to be any
way to access the release string programatically - I can tag all my source
as "FOO_R1-0" or whatever, but I can't tell from within the source that it
has been so tagged. Unless someone knows different?
