VCS::SaVeS - The Standalone Versioning System(tm)


SaVeS is a lightweight, single user, friendly-to-use versioning system. Everything is done through the svs command line tool. It is currently in a usable state even though not all of the functionality is complete.

This particular module, VCS::SaVeS is simply a namespace placeholder for a VCS::* backend module for SaVeS(tm). Once both the VCS API and the SaVeS functionality have matured a bit, this module may actually be implemented to do something.

See the following manpages for more information about SaVeS:

    svs help
    perldoc saves
    perldoc svs




This is brand new alpha stuff. A lot of work was put into it, and the basics are all seemingly working, but expect (and REPORT) bugs.

SaVeS will almost certainly not run on a non-Unixy system. This may be fixed if demand is high.

Many svs commands are documented, but not yet implemented. These are marked 'XXX' in 'svs help commands'.
