no. i'm just being a bonehead, that's all. i was stuck on simply
using ci (which doesn't have -ko) and needed to be a bit more
flexible. if, instead of doing
ci -q -l -f -mtest -t-test testfile
for the initial check-in and then
ci -q -l -f -mtest testfile
for each revision i check in, i change the first command to
ci -q -f -mtest -t-test testfile
rcs -ko testfile
co -l testfile
then i can accomplish what i want. of course, the second command
works just find as it is.
thank you for your patience. :)
