RE: rcs question

There certainly is no native RCS functionality to do this. However, we
have been using lots of 'wrapper' scripts in conjunction with rcs native
commands an I believe that this is probably the way to go. Such a script
could perform the co and also the email, whether to a standard user or
particular user based on what was checked out or maybe who did the
checkout. BTW - we use Unix not windows

best regards

Not for checkout.  Unfortunately not for checkin either.  In the era
when rcs was written this type of functionality was unknown in a version
control system.

The best that can be done is to monitor the vault files and look for
changes.  Changes could be detected when files are locked and mail sent
out by an observer process.
