This software is part of the GNU Project.

The GNU Revision Control System is a set of programs that manages multiple revisions of a file (or set of files, with some scripting).
It is the forebear of, and shares the masterfile format (also known as the comma-v format) with, CVS.  The programs are:

  • ci
  • co
  • ident
  • merge
  • rcs
  • rcsclean
  • rcsdiff
  • rcsmerge
  • rlog


The distribution also includes the program rcsfreeze, which is not normally installed, and manpages for all programs.

The GNU RCS project on Savannah is a recent (March 2010) effort to modernize the codebase (RCS 4.3 was released in November 1989 under GPLv1), apply changes that have accumulated since the last release (5.7, June 1995), and upgrade the license to GPLv3+.
