(4) Revision Control - some options Previous Top Next

Some of the players

  • SCCS (Source Code Control System) - AT&T proprietary software, distributed with many commercial versions of Unix

  • RCS (Revision Control System) - Walter Tichy; Purdue University (1985)
  • CVS (Concurrent Versions System)
  • Subversion (SVN)
  • Lots of commercial products too...

    Some of the commercial products are specifically oriented towards source code control and are integrated to some extent with other development tools (editors, compilers, debuggers). This may make them better at managing software projects, but at the cost of loss of generality. The open-source tools discussed here may be used for any text files and so can be used in many contexts.
