Keeping the Reference Copy up to date

This reference area or checked out area must always be kept up to date with the most recent committed copy of the source code. It is also possible to keep several of these, perhaps for source code at different ‘levels’.

Secondly the UD6/CMTOOL driver needs to know where files are being kept that are NOT in the ‘reference’ area. A configuration file called inuse (the filename and directory that this file is kept in can be specified in the assignment file, see the parameter listdir in the USYS$UD6_PARAMS help topic).

To simplify these two actions that need to take place at check-in, March Hare Pty Ltd provide 2 utilities for automating these tasks, add2list.exe and del2list.exe.
