Software configuration management: A late night developer's handbook

This book covers the practical side of SCM and SRM. That is, actually using packages like RCS and CVS to do branching, build reproduction, parallel branches, tags, comitting, and so forth.

I bought this book from, but it can also be had directly from the publisher, Prentice hall: * Prentice Hall -,4096,0132408546,00.html?type=FEA * Amazon -

The first half the book covers practical scenarios that commonly occur, and how to solve them using RCS. The latter part of the book contains copies of all the RCS manual pages and large list and comparison of the many SoftwareConfigurationManagement software packages available.
