Creating an SCCS file

To place files under the control of SCCS use the command:

   sccs create filename(s)

For each filename given as an argument sccs create does the following:

  1. filename is moved to ,filename
  2. a history file s.filename is created in the SCCS subdirectory
  3. a "read only" copy of the initial version of the file is made by sccs get

You can use the ls command to check that the history files have been created.

   ls SCCS

Now you can remove the ,filename files:

   rm ,*
