rcs-checkin [FILE...]

       rcs-checkin  is a helper script for checking files into RCS.  This pro-
       gram is distributed with GNU Emacs.

       This program converts files with an old Emacs-style version history for
       use  with the Emacs 19 version control interface VC, which likes to use
       RCS as its back end.

       For each file to be processed, the script looks for Emacs version files
       related  to  it. These files are checked in as deltas, oldest first, so
       that the contents of the file itself becomes the latest revision in the

       The  first  line  of  each  file  is used as its description.  The file
       itself is not deleted,  as  under  VC  with  vc-keep-workfiles  at  its
       default of t, but all the version files are.

       If  an  argument file is already version-controlled under RCS, any ver-
       sion files are added to the list of deltas and deleted,  and  then  the
       workfile  is  checked in again as the latest version.  This is probably
       not quite what was wanted, and is the main  reason  VC  doesn't  simply
       call this to do checkins.

       In  order  to  make  it  easier  to  use rcs-checkin *, files which are
       detectably either RCS masters (with names ending in ,v) or  Emacs  ver-
       sion files (with names containing ~) are ignored.

       The program accepts no options.

       The Emacs version control interface is documented in the GNU Emacs man-
       ual, which  you  can  read  using Info,  either  from  Emacs  or  as  a
       standalone program.

       rcs-checkin  was originally written by Paul Eggert.  It was revised for
       use with GNU Emacs VC by Eric S. Raymond.
