Hi all,
I had an overwhelming response to my question ( original follow at end )
and want to thank each and everybody who responded ( To many names to
mention but they know who they are.)
Everybody advised to use the GNU ( freeware ) utilities, CVS as
front-end to RCS, which is easier to use that SCCS. Also something to
look at is TCCS and the O'Reilly & associates ( book on RCS &
SCCS. TCCS is a tool set developed and explained in the book also based
on RCS.
One answer received suggested :
check out 'Razor' from Tower Concepts (
Their s/w is not free, but worth every penny!
I will though look at the GNU stuff first.
 Many places to download from: , , , , , has a number of useful links and good explanations.
Also some faq's available:

Thanx again to everybody and a great mailing list. Great to have so many
friends at your finger tips. Catch you later on the net.
Just another SUN friend.
