What is PRCS?
PRCS, the Project Revision Control System, is the front end
to a set of tools that (like CVS) provide a way to deal with sets of files
and directories as an entity, preserving coherent versions of the entire
set. PRCS was designed primarily by Paul N. Hilfinger, with input
and modifications by Luigi Semenzato and Joshua MacDonald. PRCS is written
and maintained by Joshua MacDonald. Its purpose is similar to that
of SCCS, RCS, and CVS, but (according to its authors, at least), it is
much simpler than any of those systems. This page is where information
on the latest developments in PRCS can be found. The current release of
PRCS is 1.3.1. Version 1.0 was released on September 3, 1996.
May 9. 2004. PRCS 1.3.3 has been released. See the
file for a list of changes, or download
The second major version of PRCS (PRCS2) has been under
development since early 1997, when I began a project that aims to
replace RCS as a back-end storage manager. The primary goal of
version 2 is to add client/server support. The first milestone
that was reached towards this end is Xdelta, a new delta compression algorithm
for PRCS2 based on the rsync
algorithm. The second milestone has been reached, a new storage
manager based on Xdelta.
