-: > How do I checkin/out binary files with RCS?
-: 
-: Try
-: 	rcs -i -kb foobar.bin

You can use this to initialize an empty rcs file for binary mode prior
to the initial check in.  To change an existing rcs file to binary mode,
use

	rcs -kb foo.bar

In either case this is done only once.  Note, however, that in other
contexts (notably, co) `-kb' behaves like `-ko', which is probably not
what you want if you are using rcs keywords.  You may want to alias
`co' to `co -kkv' in that case.
