Farmerwang,

I've been using CVS for a number of years. It's great for text files that are being editted by multiple people. The handling of binary files is so-so.

We've been using gnats to track bugs. It's been okay.

Hi, here we use standard unix SCCS.
If fast handling large files.

Depending of your platform, maybe you can use the gnu version (look in h**p://cssc.sourceforge.net/ ).

CVSNT / Wincvs

Also check out www.cvsnt.org for the Windows version (with :ntserver: domain authentification)

And for a good GUI we use either WinCVS (full manual control possible) or TortoiseCVS (seamless integration in Windows Exploder)
Available on www.cvsgui.org

We use ClearCase under Solaris and CVS under Windows.
I don't mean that any of that tools is good. You must be very, very carefull when use them.
But there are no alternative (academic tools under UNIX, like RCS, CVS, SCCS are rarely used in industry).

We use Clearcase under both, UNIX and Windws.

I have tried CVS and RCS, the good thing about CVS is that is free (at least it was on those days). They are all right but as soon as you get Clearcase life is great.

I am not administrator and I don't set up Clearcase, VOBs, groups, etc...as a user is great and very powerful. We use it for FPGA and Software development.

One thing I liked about RCS is that you can buy an add-on which allows you to compare .DOC documents. Something Clearcase does not do.

Regards.

I prefer Clearcase but every company/scenario is different.

Consider that Clearcase is very expensive and also complicated to set-up, CVS on the other hand is free and not that difficult to set-up.

I forgot to mention, Sourcesafe is also out there, it's not bad and is used in a lot of big/small companies. You get one license with a Visual package for instance.

Try SVN - a new version control system. It seems better than CVS in all ways. Based on http protocol over port 80. Lacks a good GUI however.

for commercial users, use ClearCase, for free users, use CVS.

I have used CVS while working for a big company. In the University, we usually use nothing and have to phase chaos all the time!

I haven't used SVN but if it lacks a good GUI... :?
DCM is not an easy task and unless you have some background\experience about it a GUI always helps.

I started using the GUI with Clearcase and now only use scripts, but sometimes is useful to get an screenshot of a tree of versions or things like that.
