       rcs-checkin - check files into RCS

       rcs-checkin [FILE...]

       rcs-checkin  is  a helper script for checking files into RCS.  This program 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 master.

       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 version 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 version files (with  names  containing  ~)  are

       The program accepts no options.

       The Emacs version control interface is documented in the GNU Emacs manual, 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.
