in thread What's your prefered revision control system?

I use RCS as well. Simple. Works.

mkdir RCS ci -u file.pl # check in file (inital touched version) co -l file.pl # check out file to make revisions .... rlog file.pl # history of a file rcsdiff -r1.2 file.pl # diff versions of files co -r1.2 file.pl # get an earlier version of a file
You can also use string subistutions to display version numbers in line of the file, but I haven't gotten that to work (yet)... Like perl, it's simple and just works...
Update:
Here's code that allows you to display the Id tag, which includes version number, last modified date, who updated it, etc.:
my $v = q{$Id$}; print "$v\n"; or simply # $Id$
Yet Another Update:
rlog file.pl # display a log history of the file changes from version +to version...

    i agree in zakzebrowskis opinion. RCS is really simple to use, as handy tools should be.

    Several times, i thought about trying out cvs, but because I'm exclusive user with my own (tiny) developements rcs suffices completly my needs.

    Is simplicity best or simply the easiest Martin L. Gore
