COVICI(1)							     COVICI(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     covici - Edit administrative databases under revision control.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     covici file

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     covici retrieves a	revision from an RCS file and opens it for editing
     using vi (1). The edited file is then stored as a new revision into the
     appropriate RCS file (see rcs (1)).

     A pathname	matching an RCS	suffix denotes an RCS file; other pathnames
     are assumed to denote working files not currently under RCS.

     If	the pathname matches an	RCS suffix covici runs co -l (see co (1)) and
     then loads	the working file into vi. If the path does not match an	RCS
     suffix the	file is	loaded directly	into vi. After editing the working
     file is checked into revision control using ci -u (see ci (1)).

     Revisions of an RCS file are checked out locked. Locking a	revision
     prevents overlapping updates.  covici fails if the	revision to be checked
     out is currently locked by	another	user.  covici always retrieves the
     latest revision.

     After editing the file, covici removes the	lock and deposits the contents
     of	the updated file into the corresponding	RCS file.  covici tries	to
     find the corresponding RCS	file in	an RCS subdirectory and	then in	the
     working file's directory.	If the RCS file	does not exist,	covici creates
     it	and deposits the contents of the working file as the initial revision
     (default number:  1.1).

FILE MODES    [Toc]    [Back]

     covici always removes the write permissions of RCS	files.
