Edit a file with RCS
This archive contains vic which is a simple wrapper around the editor of your
choice to first check the file out of RCS, edit the file, and then checks the
file back into RCS.
There are safeguards to protect the user if the file is edited outside of RCS,
and allows the user to get the RCS archive back up to date.
You can edit multiple programs at a time with something like:
The editor name is drawn from the environment variables $VISUAL, $EDITOR, or
(if all else fails) "vi".
Also included is a simple program, show.locks, which shows all of the files
from the current directory which are currently locked.
If you have files locked, but not currently being edited, you may want to do:
ci -u FILE
chmod a-w FILE
