in reply to RFC: proposed new module VCS::Lite

I take it you are aware of the VCS package already on CPAN. A nice system that integrates with cvs, rcs and hms. Its only a read-only interface right now and there development is a little slow. However they do have a sourceforge entry and a Mailing List.

As for your plans to build a self contained VCS system. Will it not suffer from the fact that its storage will be proprietory or are you planning to interface to a more widely used system as a backend?

    The aim is not to provide a full blown VCS, but a toolkit for doing certain functions: diff, patch, merge, in memory.

    It grew out of a requirement I have for a cross-platform patch and merge utility, coupled with an idea for building an OO wrapper for Algorithm::Diff.

    I was not aware of the VCS project on Sourceforge - I will check this out (pun intended) as I have an interest in VCS systems in general.
