sccs-rcs2sccs(1)	    Schily's USER COMMANDS	      sccs-rcs2sccs(1)

NAME
       sccs-rcs2sccs, rcs2sccs - convert RCS files into	SCCS files

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/ccs/bin/rcs2sccs [-rm] [-V6] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       rcs2sccs	converts RCS history files into	SCCS history files.  If	a list
       of files	is specified, this list	is converted.  If  no  file  arguments
       are specified, all RCS files in the current directory are converted.

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

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -rm	    Remove the RCS history files on success.

       -V6	    Convert into SCCS v6 history files.

       -V
       -version
       --version    Prints the rcs2sccs	version	number string and exists.

       -help	    Print a short usage	overview and exit.

EXAMPLES
ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       See environ(5) for descriptions of the following	environment  variables
       that  affect  the  execution  of	rcs2sccs(1): LANG, LC_ALL, LC_COLLATE,
       LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, and NLSPATH.

       SCCS_NO_HELP
	      If set, rcs2sccs(1) 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.

FILES
       /tmp/rcs2sccs_*
		    temporary files

ATTRIBUTES
       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

DIAGNOSTICS
       Use the SCCS help command  for  explanations  of	 messages.  See	 sccs-
       help(1).

NOTES
       While  RCS  records  time  stamps in GMT, SCCS uses local time.	When a
       SCCS v6 history file is created,	rcs2sccs converts the time  stamps  to
       SCCS GMT	time stamps with GMT offset +0000 which	can co-exist with time
       stamps in local time.

       When a SCCS v4 history file is created, converting from RCS to SCCS  is
       done by literally transforming the time stamps and thus keeping the GMT
       time base which may differ from local time.  If you like	to convert the
       time stamps in the resulting SCCS files to a local timebase, call:

	   TZ=GMT sccs cvt -V6 SCCS
	   sccs	cvt -V4	-d SCCS

       But  note  that	this conversion	may not	be correctly converted back to
       GMT in case that	time stamps exists in the overlapping period  of  wall
       clock time that appears when switching from DST to non-DST.

AUTHOR
       The original code is from around	1990 from the net from an author iden-
       tified as "kenc".  This version is maintained by	Joerg Schilling.
