RCSMERGE(1) General Commands Manual RCSMERGE(1)

merge RCS revisions

rcsmerge [-EV] [-kmode] [-p[rev]] [-q[rev]] [-xsuffixes] [-ztz] -rrev file ...

The rcsmerge program merges changes between two revisions of an RCS file into the corresponding working file.

rcsmerge also supports keyword substitution – see the rcs(1) man page for more information.

The following options are supported:

Default merge: see diff3(1) for details.
Specify the keyword substitution mode.
Print result to standard output.
Be quiet about reporting.
Merge with respect to revision rev. This option should be specified twice to merge changes between two specific revisions. If only one revision is specified, merging is done between that revision and the latest revision of the default branch.
Print RCS's version number.
Specify the suffixes for RCS files. Suffixes should be separated by the ‘/’ character.
Specify the time zone for keyword substitution.

If set, this variable should contain a list of space-delimited options that are prepended to the argument list.

The rcsmerge utility exits with one of the following values:

No overlaps.
Overlaps were found.
An error occurred.

Merge differences between revision 1.4 and 1.8 of foo.c and print the result to standard output:

$ rcsmerge -p -r1.4 -r1.8 foo.c

Undo changes between revision 2.4 and 2.8 of foo.c, overwriting the working copy:

$ rcsmerge -r2.8 -r2.4 foo.c
