This is the README file for GNU CSSC, a workalike for the source code
control system SCCS.  It is based on the MySC package by Ross Ridge.

Although this is a full public release of CSSC, there are features of
the SCCS suite which are not fully implemented.  The most important of
these is excluded deltas.

Specific information about compiling CSSC on particular platforms is
provided in the file "docs/Platforms".

			Quick Start
0.      Configuring the package

 To configure CSSC before compiling it, run the "configure" script.
 See the file INSTALL for the generic options you can use with "configure".
 Options for "configure" that are specific to CSSC are detailed below.

    This is the default setting (but the default setting may change 
    in the future).

    Enables support for creating "binary" SCCS files (required for
    interoperability with Solaris).  If binary support is disabled,
    encoded SCCS files can still be read, but not created.  You should
    disable this feature only if you need to interoperate with a
    version of SCCS which lacks binary file support.

    The setting of this option can be overridden at runtime by setting 
    the environment variable CSSC_BINARY_SUPPORT to "disable".


    Turns off suport for creating encoded ("binary") SCCS files.
    CSSC will still handle these as input, but will never create one,
    when this option is used.

    The setting of this option can be overridden at runtime by setting 
    the environment variable CSSC_BINARY_SUPPORT to "enable".


    The default setting corresponds with N=0.

    Sets the maximum line length allowed in SCCS files to N.  By
    default, CSSC has no limit.  Use this option only if you need to
    make CSSC interoperate with other versions of SCCS.  This limit
    applies only to the actual body lines in the file, and are not 
    checked for (e.g.) comments.  This means that by entering a 
    very long comment, you can make CSSC produce an SCCS file which 
    cannot be read by some other versions of SCCS.

    The setting of this option can be overridden at runtime by setting 
    the environment variable CSSC_MAX_LINE_LENGTH to a positive integer. 
    Setting CSSC_MAX_LINE_LENGTH to 0 removes the limit (and so CSSC will
    handle lines of any length).

1.	Compiling

 You will probably need to compile the software with GNU make.

 The default installation directory for the binaries is 
 /usr/local/libexec/cssc, except for the sccs comand, which gets
 installed in /usr/local/bin.  

 If you want to change this, you will need to read the file INSTALL.

 If, for example, you want to install the files in /usr/libexec/cssc
 and so on rather than in /usr/local/..., you just need to pass the 
 argument "prefix=/usr" to make.    

 If, on the other hand, all you wanted to do was to install the binaries
 in a normal binary directory, you can do this with the argument
 "csscutildir=/usr/local/bin" to make. 

 The program "sccs" (from the subdirectory bsd) is sensitive to the
 setting of $(csscutildir) at compile time, because it compiles in the
 value of that option as the default place to find the various

 mkdir work
 cd work

2.	Testing 

 The tests can be run with "make check":

 if make check 2>&1 | tee make.log 

 If this fails, take a look at "make.log".

 Note that this test process accepts several environment variables
 which allow you to point it at a particular installation of the
 tools.  If you have used these variables for something else, the test
 will fail.  These variables are :-

 $dir, $get, $admin, $cdc, $prs, $prt, $delta, $sact, $sccsdiff,
 $unget, $what, $rmdel, $sccs

 If the tests failed, I'll definitely need some more information and
 so it would be best to keep the test outputs in case I need them in
 order to fix the bug ("tar cf failed-tests.tar tests" should do fine
 for that).  I may need to ask you to send a compressed version of
 this to me.

3.	Installing
 cd work
 make install


SCCS commands implemented this package are: admin, cdc, delta, get,
prs, prt, sccsdiff, rmdel, sact, sccs, unget, val and what.  Not all
options and capabilities of the commands have been implemented yet,
and the comb and help commands are not provided at all.  

You can use these tools to convert your SCCS repository to RCS or CVS
- to do this, you will also need the SCCS-to-RCS conversion script by
Jonathan Leffler (which should be included in the source distribution
of CVS).

Unimplemented features include the "-h" option of admin (use "val"
instead), ignored deltas (delta -g), l-files (get -l).  Some features
like including and excluding deltas (get -i -x) have been implemented
but not extensively tested.

See the file INSTALL for information on how to compile this package.
Send any questions or bug reports by e-mail to the current maintainer,
<>.  After you have compiled CSSC, _PLEASE_ run the test
suite, as described in docs/TESTING, unless you are using GCC or EGCS
under Linux, in which case please don't bother sending success reports
[since I already know that works].  I'm particularly intersested in
success reports for platforms not in the "docs/Platforms" file.

To generate the manual, type "make dvi".  For the PostScript version,
type "cd docs ; make".  If you don't have TeX, you can read
the "info" documentation with either the GNU "info" program, or Emacs.

To regenerate all the machine-generated files from their ultimate
sources (for example, after checking the controlled sources out of a
CVS repository), use
followed by the usual invocation of "configure" and "make".
Alternatively, if you have a sufficiently new version of Autoconf
installed, you could just run "autoreconf".  However, if you do this,
some benign warnings will be generated for "testutils/".

The most helpful thing you could possibly do for this project would be
to contribute a new test case.  It isn't hard; the test scripts are
just shell scripts; instructions on how to do this are provided in the
