NAME
       rcsfreeze - freeze a configuration of sources checked in	under RCS

SYNOPSIS
       rcsfreeze [name]

DESCRIPTION
       rcsfreeze assigns a symbolic revision number to a set of	RCS files that
       form a valid configuration.

       The idea	is to run rcsfreeze each time a	new version is checked in.   A
       unique  symbolic	 name  (C_number,  where number	is increased each time
       rcsfreeze is run) is then assigned to the most recent revision of  each
       RCS file	of the main trunk.

       An  optional  name  argument  to	rcsfreeze gives	a symbolic name	to the
       configuration.  The unique identifier is	still generated	and is	listed
       in the log file but it will not appear as part of the symbolic revision
       name in the actual RCS files.

       A log message is	requested from the user	for future reference.

       The shell script	works only on all RCS files at one time.  All  changed
       files  must  be	checked	 in  already.	Run  rcsclean(1) first and see
       whether any sources remain in the current directory.

FILES
       RCS/.rcsfreeze.ver
	      version number

       RCS/.rcsfreeze.log
	      log messages, most recent	first

BUGS
       rcsfreeze does not check	whether	any sources are	checked	out and	 modi-
       fied.

       Although	 both  source file names and RCS file names are	accepted, they
       are not paired as usual with RCS	commands.

       Error checking is rudimentary.

       rcsfreeze is just an optional example shell script, and should  not  be
       taken too seriously.  See CVS for a more	complete solution.
