RCS, what is it? how do i install it...

One of our DBAs is requesting RCS be installed on one of our boxes...what is it? Where do I get it from? Thanks.

RCS is a standard UNIX utility for version control. RCS comes as a part of most UNIX distibutions 'out-of-the-box'. Snippet from the man page:

RCS is available as open source GNU software. Could someone post a link to the MIT GNU archive on the net for the poster?

The web page is here: http://www.gnu.org/directory/rcs.html

It includes links to the source code, an RPM and a deb.
