RCS_TTX - Integrate TurboText and RCS
Daniel J. Barrett
I was inspired by the recent review in comp.sys.amiga.reviews of
the DICE 3.0 C Compiler, which integrates RCS support into its
programming environment. And so, I have written 3 simple ARexx scripts
that integrate RCS with the TurboText text editor. One script "checks
in" the current document, one displays the recent changes in the current
document, and one displays the change log of the current document.
TTX_RCS is useful both for programmers and for any other TurboText
users. You can "check in" versions of any text file for safe-keeping,
not just program source code.
TTX_RCS is currently a simple hack that I designed and wrote in one
evening. However, it is quite useful, and I tested it even as I wrote
yet. Yes, TTX_RCS was used to maintain *itself* as it was being
created. :-) (Thanks to TurboText's interactive ARexx console!)
AmigaDOS 2.04 or higher. (Untested under AmigaDOS 1.3.)
TurboText 1.03 or higher.

Later versions of RCS_TTX will probably be placed into the public
domain. I want to add more features and eliminate bugs (if any) before
