NAME

     sccs-rcs2sccs, rcs2sccs - convert RCS files into SCCS files


SYNOPSIS

     /usr/ccs/bin/rcs2sccs [-rm] [-V6] [file...]


DESCRIPTION

     rcs2sccs converts RCS history files into SCCS history files.
     If a list of files is specified, this list is converted.  If
     no file arguments  are  specified,  all  RCS  files  in  the
     current directory are converted.


OPTIONS

     The following options are supported:

     -rm          Remove the RCS history files on success.

     -V6          Convert into SCCS v6 history files.

     -V           Prints the rcs2sccs version number  string  and
                  exists.

     -help        Print a short usage overview and exit.


EXAMPLES


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

     See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment
     variables  that  affect the execution of rcs2sccs(1):  LANG,
     LC_ALL, LC_COLLATE, LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, and NLSPATH.

     SCCS_NO_HELP
          If set, rcs2sccs(1) will not automatically call help(1)
          with the SCCS error code in order to print a more help-
          ful error message. Scripts that  depend  on  the  exact
          error messages of SCCS commands should set the environ-
          ment variable SCCS_NO_HELP and set LC_ALL=C.


FILES

     /tmp/rcs2sccs_*
                  temporary files

DIAGNOSTICS

     Use the SCCS help command for explanations of messages.  See
     sccs-help(1).


NOTES

     While RCS records time stamps in GMT, SCCS uses local  time.
     When  a  SCCS  v6 history file is created, rcs2sccs converts
     the time stamps to SCCS GMT  time  stamps  with  GMT  offset
     +0000 which can co-exist with time stamps in local time.

     When a SCCS v4 history file is created, converting from  RCS
     to  SCCS  is done by literarily transforming the time stamps
     and thus keeping the GMT time base  which  may  differ  from
     local  time.   If you like to convert the time stamps in the
     resulting SCCS files to a local timebase, call:

         TZ=GMT sccs cvt -V6 SCCS
         sccs cvt -V4 -d SCCS

     But note that this conversion may not be correctly converted
     back  to GMT in case that time stamps exists in the overlap-
     ping period of wall clock time that appears  when  switching
     from DST to non-DST.

     The original code is from around 1990 from the net  from  an
     author  identified as "kenc".  This version is maintained by
