Nucleus Commands

SCCS.RELDUMP

SCCS.RELDUMP, a part of Nucleus source code control provides a method for creating a controlled release of changes to a project or account. The build set created, will include ALL items previously released from source code control in the account (or attached project), which are not currently under modification. (A patch or limited release can also be created).

Attach the desired media (tape or floppy) while in the account you wish to distribute a source code release for, using the appropriate system command (SET-DEVICE, T-ATT, T-SELECT, ASSIGN, etc).
T-REW

Then invoke SCCS.RELDUMP {ProjectName}

Syntax

SCCS.RELDUMP accountname {(options}
Or
SCCS.RELDUMP projectname {(options}

If using projectname, the project must be attached. See documentation on NUPROJECT

The arguments 'HXS' provide compatibility across most platforms (D3, mvBASE, universe)

Invoking SCCS.RELDUMP in an account does NOT require 'accountname' to be stated if the current account, is the account from which to create a release dump.

OptionsDescription
TTransfer - allows items from multiple accounts
HSHeader suppress
SHeader suppress
XForces compatability between platforms (dumps additional trailer blocks)
CCompare the library and program copies
OTo dump "Object Only".

It writes OBJECT and the SYSTYPE into the tape header so RELLOAD knows what it is dealing with. An Object tape can only be loaded on similar SYSTYPE's (i.e. UV-UV or D3-D3)

FFlat dump – use when transferring to incompatible systems. This creates a series of flat files in the form dump1.asc … dumpN.asc in a named directory, as /tmp/flat in a unix based system, or as SCCS.RELDUMP C:\TEMP\FLAT FOR UV LJDEV (F
for a Windows based system.
UUnidata, Prime or QM format. Generally used in conjunction with the F option, as: SCCS.RELDUMP ProjectName (FU
