Component Software RCS is a program that controls revisions and is intended to use on a standalone or networked workstations. It supports multi-platform workgroups transparently converting the document(s) to UNIX or Windows format so sharing is easy.

It comes with a tutorial that takes about 10 minutes to go through. The tutor teaches you how to add files to RCS, to check-in and check-out files, view revisions and convert to old versions of the file among other things. It keeps a complete history of the changes performed to files. Is great for programs, word processing documents, and html document. It works on binary files.

In the workgroup environment it will let you know who does what and when, avoids 2 users modifying the file at the same time, and lets you know when there is an update. It will work on LAN, Corporate Wide Networks, Dial-up connections, and the Internet. All in all it is a powerful and easy to use program.
