Revision Control System#
For Windows systems#
You must install a command line version of RCS. An easy way to get a lot of Unix commands, is by installing the Cygwin package.
For Unix systems#
First check if you have RCS available:
If no ci binary is available, you don't have RCS. For Unix systems get the source from a GNU mirror in /pub/gnu/rcs, and install it in the normal fashion with "tar xvzf ...; cd rcs...; ./configure; make; make install".
- With Gentoo just use 'emerge rcs'. -- Jogi
- Q - I seem to have version control abilities with the UseMod Engine even through I get no ci binary when I try which ci. Is this possible? How? e.g. http://undertheoak.net/cgi-bin/wiki?action=history&id=UnderTheOak Will I get RCS with JSPWiki then? -- MatthewSimpson
- A - When I tried jspwiki.pageProvider = RCSFileProvider it didn't work, even though the cgi-based wiki engine seems to be able to handle revisions. VersioningFileProvider works. -- MatthewSimpson Which version of Unix did you try this on? Don't try this on Windows unless you are a masochist. I've had very good success with the VersioningFileProvider on Windows (I assume Unix would be identical). --MichaelGentry It is Red Hat Linux release 7.1 -- MatthewSimpson
- I installed JSPWiki under Gentoo Linux 2004.4. I emerged rcs, but the RCSFileProvider does not work. The FileSystemProvider and the VersioningFileProvider are working fine. -- Jogi
Notably Solaris 8 ship without RCS (_AND_ it ships without a C compiler).
