Does anyone use a version control system, like CVS or SourceSafe? If so, which one?

We use a home grown system very much like sourcesafe, but better. IMHO.

At the moment, no. I haven't spent a lot of time on it recently,
mostly because it just works.

I do have a growing list of enhancements for it though. Maybe I'll
make it MyEdit friendly.

If you don't mind my asking, how does it work?

I mean, do you use it for BR?

I'd like to find a good solution for protecting BR source code.

I know if you work with BR entirely in source code text files (like I usually do) then you can integrate any source code repository product with it. VSS integrates with pretty much any language that uses Text Files.

But I want to hear more about your solution.

well maybe i should answer my own question in this thread too...

currently we're using source safe, and we use procs to check files in and out from the console.

I'm looking for a free alternative that enables peoples to check files in and out over the internet. Preferably from a command line. Does yours allow you to do that Ryan? If so hows does yours compare against Subversion or CVS?

There is no comparison of my system to the likes of Subversion or CVS
other than they are a VCS.

Subversion and CVS support concurrent checkins, patching and differencing.

My system, the DMS (Demand Management System), does not do that.

The DMS is similar to VSS in the fact that it is a locked check-out/check-in
system.

It maintain entire files and not deltas.

It is a modular system that has support for Version Control, Bug tracking,
To-do Items and Automated build scripting.

It's not free.

It also does not currently have a command line version.

It's a DB back end, that currently uses the Firebird RDBMS, but could also use
other RDBMSs, such as SQL Server, Sybase or Oracle.

Because I currently use Firebird, I can have any access to any repository that is
exposed to the internet. For example, I have a personal repository at home and
the repository here at the office. Both are accessible from the office.

Security is maintained by the DBMS engine and the use of firewalls.

It doesn't make any distinction between binary or text files.

My system is a different beast to products like Subversion, CVS or VSS.

I wrote it a number of years back because I wanted an all in one solution to
version control, bug tracking and automated building. There are a number of
other modules currently available, but these are the primary ones, IMO.

Ryan.

Thank you for explaining.

So far the user counts for various Version Control Systems by BR! Developers
are:
SourceSafe (VSS) - 1
Demand Management System (DMS) - 1

Does anyone else use one of these or anything else for this sort of thing?

yours allow you to do that Ryan? If so hows does yours compare

If you don't mind my asking, how does it work?

I mean, do you use it for BR?

I'd like to find a good solution for protecting BR source code.

I know if you work with BR entirely in source code text files (like I
usually do) then you can integrate any source code repository product
with it. VSS integrates with pretty much any language that uses Text Files.

But I want to hear more about your solution.

Are you counting users or companies?

So far the user counts for various Version Control Systems by BR! Developers
are:
SourceSafe (VSS) - 1
Demand Management System (DMS) - 1

Does anyone else use one of these or anything else for this sort of thing?

There is no comparison of my system to the likes of Subversion or CVS other than
they are a VCS.

Subversion and CVS support concurrent checkins, patching and differencing.

My system, the DMS (Demand Management System), does not do that.

The DMS is similar to VSS in the fact that it is a locked check-out/check-in
system.

It maintain entire files and not deltas.

It is a modular system that has support for Version Control, Bug tracking, To-do
Items and Automated build scripting.

It's not free.

It also does not currently have a command line version.

It's a DB back end, that currently uses the Firebird RDBMS, but could also use
other RDBMSs, such as SQL Server, Sybase or Oracle.

Because I currently use Firebird, I can have any access to any repository that
is exposed to the internet. For example, I have a personal repository at home
and the repository here at the office. Both are accessible from the office.

Security is maintained by the DBMS engine and the use of firewalls.

It doesn't make any distinction between binary or text files.

My system is a different beast to products like Subversion, CVS or VSS.

I wrote it a number of years back because I wanted an all in one solution to
version control, bug tracking and automated building. There are a number of
other modules currently available, but these are the primary ones, IMO.

[BR_forum] Version control

Postby Susan Smith » Thu Aug 14, 2008 1:32 pm

I don't use a version control system at all. Well on second thought, I have a very prehistoric procedure that PRETENDS to be a version control system:

I don't store my source in source format. It's all in .wb files. I have a backup folder for each programs directory that contains all of the prior versions of the programs from that folder. I save each version with an file extension that is basically the version #. So for example, to modify my "CUSTUPD.WB/PGMS" program:
  • LOAD CUSTUPD/PRGMS
  • "List 20" to see the current version # which is stored in a comment line near the top of each of my programs
00020 ! Version 3.45 Last updated 04/30/2005
  • COPY CUSTUPD.WB/PRGMS CUSTUPD.145/PRGMS.OLD
  • Next I modify the line 20 comment line in the existing program to bump up the version # from 3.45 to 3.46 (the "3" being a major release in my case)
00020 ! Version 3.46 Last updated 08/14/2008
  • REPLACE

Presto chango, a rudimentary version control system for one person. No, it doesn't help if two people are working on the same program (that can't happen here - I'm a sole proprietor and heaven knows, no one around here wants to help me <s>). It has plenty of limitations. But since I work in one place ALONE, and I am VERY faithful about doing this little procedure every time I load a program to work on it, it's enough. I DO have an entire folder of all of the old versions of every program I work on and can easily go back if needed. When I need to go back to an older version for some reason, I use a wonderful program called EXAMDIFF to compare two versions to see the differences. This requires that I save both programs as source first, but that only takes a moment. I put this program on the conference CD a while back. There's a free version and a paid pro version which has more features (that I think is worth paying $35 per license for). http://www.prestosoft.com/edp_examdiff.asp

Under my WB directory, there is separate backup folder for each programs directory:

SRPGMS and it's backup folder SRPGMS.OLD
NVPGMS and NVPGMS.OLD
MSPGMS and MSPGMS.OLD, etc

It's better than nothing!
