Re: Syntax for Pairs of Working and RCS Files

My version of RCS is 5.7.  I am not sure if I downloaded it from the Purdue site ( or if it is the binaries that were included with CS-RCS.  (I think on one PC it is the former, and on the other it is the latter.)

I haven't had any version control after CS-RCS stopped working.  (Not much coding lately.  I have been creating manual backups, i.e. foo v1.4.txt.)

CS-RCS saves files in the standard RCS format.  When I set CS-RCS up, I chose a network drive as my repository because it gets backed up regularly.  Now, trying RCS commands in a CMD prompt doesn't seem to find network locations.  That is why I am looking for the correct syntax for specifying both the work file and RCS file.

   ci -l c:\my_dir\foo.txt  \\my_server\my_stuff\c\my_dir\foo.txt,v
   ci -l \\my_server\my_stuff\c\my_dir\foo.txt,v
   ci -l \\my_server\my_stuff\c\my_dir\foo.txt,v  c:\my_dir\foo.txt

   None of these work (given that I am currently in C:\my_dir).
   RCS complains that it can't find the file(s).

Which version of RCS are you using?  (Use ‘rcs --version’ to
find out, if on 5.8 or later, otherwise ‘rcs -V’.)

How about specifying working file name w/o dir:

 ci -l foo.txt

Or RCS file name w/o dir:

 ci -l foo.txt,v

   If I create C:\my_dir\RCS, rcs commands work with this
   structure.  So I know that rcs is installed, and working

OK, that's good to know.

Interesting.  Is CS-RCS basically RCS?
