rcs.vim is a set of autocommands, commands, and a menu to help you handle RCS controlled files.
Version: 0.10rcs.vim is a set of autocommands, commands, and a menu to help you handle RCS controlled files.
Operating System: Linux
If you try to modify a readonly file that has a RCS/< file >,v counterpart you will be asked if you want to check the file out for modification, and when you unload the buffer you'll be prompted if you want to check the file back in, and allowed to enter a log message.
Most of the commands have corresponding menu items, which should be fairly self-explanatory.
Details are in the auto-generated help file, see ":help rcs.txt".
Vim is a text editor first released by Bram Moolenaar in 1991 for the Amiga computer. Vim was created as an extended version of the vi editor, with many additional features designed to be helpful in editing program source code; its full name is Vi IMproved.
While Vim is cross-platform, it is most popular on Unix-like operating systems.
Released under a software license compatible with the GNU General Public License, Vim is free and open source software. The program's license includes some charityware clauses.
Like vi, Vim's interface is based not on menus or icons but on commands given in a text user interface; its GUI mode, gVim, adds menus and toolbars for commonly used commands but the full functionality is still expressed through its command line mode.
For many users learning Vim may be difficult and slow initially, but once the basics are understood they progress quickly and editing becomes more efficient. To facilitate this, Vim has a built-in tutorial for beginners. There is also the Vim Users' Manual that details the basic and more advanced Vim features. This manual can be read from within Vim, or found online.
Vim also has a built-in help facility (using the :help command) that allows users to query and navigate through commands and features.
Place rcs.vim in your plugin directory. See ":help 'runtimepath'". If the help file isn't automatically generated, try doing ":RCSUpdateHelp ~/.vim/doc".
