Nucleus Commands


The REL command is part of the Nucleus Source Code Control System.

It is used to release an item or items, owned by the current owner to the program pool for future modifications.

Syntax to release a single item

REL filename item-id

Syntax to release multiple items

GET-LIST listname REL filename{,volume}

Syntax to release EVERYTHING

FULLREL filename{,volume} *

This forces ALL items within the file to be released from source code control. FULLREL stamps EVERY item within the file with the same Version and the same comment. Ensure that the version specified is as high as or higher than the highest version found within the file.


REL places a date- and time-stamped copy of the released code (or item) in the Backup library SCCS,BACKUP.
