sccs-editor(1)		    Schily's USER COMMANDS		sccs-editor(1)

NAME
       sccs-editor - Edit a file whether or not	it is controlled by SCCS

SYNOPSIS
       sccs editor [editor options] file1 .. filen

DESCRIPTION
       Edit a file whether or not is is	controlled by SCCS.  If	a file is con-
       trolled by SCCS and currently not checked out for editing, the file  is
       checked	out for	editing	first and then edited.	If the file is not un-
       der control of SCCS, the	editor is called directly.

       The SCCS_EDITOR or EDITOR environment variable must  be	set  appropri-
       ately in	order to call a	custom editor.

       A  way  to  hide	 the  fact  that files need to checked out for editing
       first, is to set	SCCS_EDITOR and	then alias the editor, e.g.:

	  SCCS_EDITOR=ved
	  alias	ved='sccs editor'

       Note that in order to minimize the side effects of  calling  the	 alias
       `ved  *',  sccs	editor	will call unget(1) or sccs unedit on all files
       that have not been modified by the edit session and that	have not  been
       checked out for editing before.

       This  subcommand	 is a SCHILY extension that does not exist in historic
       sccs implementations.

OPTIONS
EXAMPLES
       To edit the file	xec.c in the current directory call:

	      sccs editor xec.c

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       See environ(5) for descriptions of the following	environment  variables
       that affect the execution of sccs-editor(1): EDITOR, SCCS_EDITOR, LANG,
       LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, and NLSPATH.

       SCCS_NO_HELP
	      If set, sccs editor will not automatically call help(1) with the
	      SCCS  error code in order	to print a more	helpful	error message.
	      Scripts that depend on the exact error messages of SCCS commands
	      should   set  the	 environment  variable	SCCS_NO_HELP  and  set
	      LC_ALL=C.
