s_rcsstate



NAME

      system rcsstate - define status for versions of RCS files in a system
      configuration or a part of it.


SYNOPSIS

      system rcsstate [options] state system_path [files]


DESCRIPTION

      The command system rcsstate defines a status for versions of RCS files
      in a system configuration, or in a part of it. For each subsystem, the
      command rcsstate is invoked.

    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).

      system_path
           Specifies a system configuration or a subsystem in a system
           configuration as a top of directory tree where the attributes
           will be defined.

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

    OPTIONS
      -q   Quiet mode. Diagnostics are not printed.

      -t   Apply the command on the complete directory tree, starting from
           the system_path specified.

      -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

      system rcsstate Rel:R2_0_0 syst1/2.0-0

      defines the status Rel to the version of a file named R2_0_0 in the
      configuration 2.0-0.
