Checking in a new revision under RCS
Whenever you have a version of your file that you want to archive
with RCS, check it in with the
% ci foo RCS/foo,v <-- foo new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1 enter log message, terminated with single '.' or end of file: >>The
>>prompt tells you to type a summary of the changes made since the last version. (See `Listing the current changes to an RCS file' for a discussion on how to review the changes you have made.)
Type one or more lines describing your recent changes, and end by typing a line containing only a period (.).
This procedure will delete your working copy. Use
to check out a new working (writeable) copy (see
`Locking a file under RCS control'), or use
co to check out a read-only copy (see
`Checking out a read-only file under RCS').
