There's shell script versions in the contrib directory of CVS. You can also
find one here:

that an officemate did in perl, converted from the original shell scripts.
I used to have a version that would automatically resynchronize an RCS
repository with SCCS from a cron job (by grabbing any new revisions in SCCS
and checking them into RCS), but that got lost when I switched jobs about a
year and a half ago :-( (too bad, because I'd like to have it right now to
use as the basis for converting MS SourceSafe to CVS - has anybody else
ever had the misfortune to be saddled with *that* task???).
