      rcsmerge - merge RCS revisions

      rcsmerge -rrev1 [-rrev2] [-p] file

      rcsmerge incorporates the changes between rev1 and rev2 of an RCS file
      into the corresponding working file.  If -p is given, the result is
      printed on the standard output; otherwise the result overwrites the
      working file.

      A file name ending in ,v is an RCS file name; otherwise it is a
      working file name.  rcsmerge derives the working file name from the
      RCS file name and vice versa, as explained in rcsintro(5).  A pair
      consisting of both an RCS and a working file name can also be

      rev1 cannot be omitted.  If rev2 is omitted, the latest revision on
      the trunk is assumed.  Both rev1 and rev2 can be given numerically or

      rcsmerge prints a warning if there are overlaps, and delimits the
      overlapping regions as explained for the -j option of co(1).  The
      command is useful for incorporating changes into a checked-out

      Suppose you have released revision 2.8 of f.c.  Assume furthermore
      that you just completed revision 3.4 when you receive updates to
      release 2.8 from someone else.  To combine the updates to 2.8 and your
      changes between 2.8 and 3.4, put the updates to 2.8 into file f.c and

	   rcsmerge -p -r2.8 -r3.4 f.c >&gt&gt>f.merged.c

      Then examine f.merged.c.	Alternatively, if you want to save the
      updates to 2.8 in the RCS file, check them in as revision and
      execute co -j:

	   ci -r2.8.1.1 f.c
	   co -r3.4 -j2.8: f.c

      As another example, the following command undoes the changes between
      revision 2.4 and 2.8 in your currently checked out revision in f.c:

	   rcsmerge -r2.8 -r2.4 f.c

      Note the order of the arguments, and that f.c is overwritten.
