Yesterday, I was faced with the challenge of integrating RCS with Mercury Change Management. RCS is one of many available version control software on UNIX. As such Mercury ITG has out-of-the-box support for RCS. However, it is critical to understand the functioning of the actual software in order to integrate it with ITG. In order to understand the functioning of RCS, I searched the Net looking for tutorials. I found many, but none of them was specifically written keeping in mind Windows users. So, I decided to post what I did.
I had to post the article on my other site, as I originally created the document in MS Word and you know how difficult it is to get MS Word generated HTML to get accepted anywhere. Following the exact steps as given in the article, you can develop a good understanding of the product. The target of this article is to make you learn the basics of RCS on your own.
