in thread What's your prefered revision control system?

I use RCS as well. Simple. Works.
mkdir RCS ci -u # check in file (inital touched version) co -l # check out file to make revisions .... rlog # history of a file rcsdiff -r1.2 # diff versions of files co -r1.2 # get an earlier version of a file
You can also use string subistutions to display version numbers in line of the file, but I haven't gotten that to work (yet)... Like perl, it's simple and just works...
Here's code that allows you to display the Id tag, which includes version number, last modified date, who updated it, etc.:
my $v = q{$Id$}; print "$v\n"; or simply # $Id$
Yet Another Update:
rlog # display a log history of the file changes from version +to version...
