RCSunder the directory where you will be working on your files. Type this Unix command:
% mkdir RCS
cicommand. For example, if your file were named
foo, you would check it in using this Unix command:
% ci foo RCS/foo,v <-- foo enter description, terminated with single '.' or end of file: NOTE: This is NOT the log message! >>As the sample output shows, you will be prompted to type in a brief description of what this file contains or what it is for. End the description with a line containing only one period (.).
This procedure will delete your working copy. The next topic will tell you how to get it back.
