rcsstate



NAME

      rcsstate - define status for a version of a RCS file


SYNOPSIS

      rcsstate [options] state [files]


DESCRIPTION

      The command rcsstate defines a status for a version of a RCS file.
      Each version of a RCS file has a defined status. Several versions may
      have the same status.

    PARAMETERS
      state[:rev]
           Set the state attribute of the version rev to state . If rev is a
           branch number, assume the latest version on that branch. If rev
           is omitted, assume the latest version on the default branch. Any
           symbolic name of a rev is acceptable for state. A useful set of
           states is Unchanged (starting status) Exp (for experimental),
           Stable (for stable), Rel (for released), and Obsolete (for not
           used). By default, ci(1) sets the state of a version to Exp.

      files
           Specifies files which attribututes should be changed. If no file
           is specified then all the files placed in the RCS library are
           looked for, i.e. the default value for files is RCS/*.

    OPTIONS
      -q   Quiet mode. Diagnostics are not printed.

      -g grp
           Change attributes for all files belonging to the group grp.

      -x suffixes
           Use suffixes to characterize RCS files. See checkin for details.


EXAMPLES

      rcsstate Stable:R2_0_0

      defines the status Stable to file versions named R2_0_0.
