Suppose you have a file called lang that is simply a list of five programming language names:
C PL/I FORTRAN COBOL ALGOL
Custody of your lang file can be given to SCCS using the admin (for administer) command. The following creates an SCCS file from the lang file:
$ admin -ilang s.langAll SCCS files must have names that begin with s., hence s.lang. The -i keyletter, together with its value lang, means admin is to create an SCCS file and initialize it with the contents of the file lang.
The admin command replies
No id keywords (cm7)This is a warning message that may also be issued by other SCCS commands. Ignore it for now. Its significance is described in ``get''. In the following examples, this warning message is not shown although it may be issued.
Remove the lang file. It is no longer needed because it exists now under SCCS as s.lang.
$ rm lang
