From what I have seen, you have to initize the file first before the file is first placed into RCS
To initilize:
rcs -i -kb <filename>
ci <filename>
From then on you should be able to "co" and "ci" normally and the file will stay in binary format.
Although merge is not available with binary files.

Is there a danger to keep binary/executable  files in RCS? Can they be damaged? If so , is there a way to prevent the damage? Thanks.

And… how does the RCS "know" it's a binary file?
