Overview

GNU RCS

https://www.gnu.org/software/rcs/
The GNU Revision Control System.

RCS is a very simple file versioning tool to manage multiple revisions of files. It can store, retrieve, log, identify, and merge revisions. It is useful for files that are revised frequently, e.g. programs, documentation, graphics, and papers. It can handle text as well as binary files, although functionality is reduced for the latter.

RCS works with versions stored on a single filesystem or machine, edited by one person at a time. Other version control systems, such as Bazaar, CVS, Subversion, and Git, support distributed access in various ways. Which is more appropriate depends on the task at hand. Anyway, this can make it suitable for system administration files, for example, which are often inherently local to one machine.

RCS was designed and built in 1982 by Walter F. Tichy of Purdue University. It is part of the GNU Project since November 1989.
