Hi,
I am working on a project in unix environment (using telnet thru out local NT machines)and
are using RCS for the code and version maintainence.
I just want to know if we have any utility or command which can be used to find out all the code changes done in span of any time period, say at the end of the day to find out all the changes at the end of each day.
I am new to unix.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Varun.

The find utility allows you to search through files by timestamp and determined what's been touched since any given time.
You can do this by touching a new file at your check time or using an existing file as your time base. Let's say that find is called checkpoint.
From the directory path that includes all the files you care about, just incant:

Hi - Once you have telnet'd to the Unix box, a number of RCS commands should be available:
ci
co
ident
rcs
rcsclean
rcsdiff
rcsmerge
rlog
Each should have a man page you can look at. 'rlog' is what you want, so try:
man rlog
