I'm considering using RCS or SCCS for system file control (e.g.,
/etc/vfstab, /etc/services, etc.). I've noticed that RCS seems to
have one shortcoming with this type of use in that if I do not
specify "-u" to the ci utility, RCS moves the file of interest to
a ",v" version into either the current working directory or ./RCS.
Omitting this switch on something like /etc/system could be
What good solutions exist for managing system files using standard
tools such as RCS or SCCS?
