GNU RCS

https://www.gnu.org/software/rcs/
Version control and project management software

RCS is the original Revision Control System. It works on a file-by-file basis, in contrast to subsequent version control systems such as CVS, Subversion, and Git. This can make it suitable for system administration files, for example, which are often inherently local to one machine.

Technical paper and manual pages included
