DESCRIPTION

    HWGRCS is a port of GNU RCS 5.6.0.1 done with SAS/C 6.51.

    The Revision Control System (RCS) manages multiple revisions
    of  files.   RCS  automates the storing, retrieval, logging,
    identification, and merging of revisions.  RCS is useful for
    text that is revised frequently, for example programs, docu-
    mentation, graphics, papers, and form letters.

    For upgraders from the old RCS 4.x on Fish 281/282:

        - HWGRCS supports the RCS_link feature
        - No problems with non-ASCII characters

    Special features:

        - File pattern and response file expansion in all RCS commands.
        - Support for .a,.ag,.asm,.fd,.guide,.i,.ps extensions.
        - GNU DIFF 2.6, GNU patch 2.1 and a N*rton like LP utility.
        - AmigaGuide. docs.
        - I try to _support_ HWGRCS.


NEW FEATURES

    New since patch level 7:

    - DIFF/PATCH AmigaGuide. docs.
    - Reference directory support.
    - New Amiga keywords.
    - Local environment variables are checked.
    - Directory/Process specific configuration options.
    - Filename patterns to ignore are configurable.
    - .ag AmigaGuide. extension recognized.

    Bugs fixed since level 7:

    - RCS_link is always ignored as filename now with pattern expansion.
