PVCS-Wishful Thinking

So, I'm going to ask this question knowing full well that I'm going to
be grossly disappointed in the answer; however, I have to try.

<clearing throat>

Has anyone within the sound of this post developed or heard anyone who
has developed ruby tools to speak with Serena PVCS (Formerly, Merrant
PVCS (Formerly, Intersolv PVCS))?

There I asked it. Now I can be disappointed.

Eeeewww! Our company just switched to Change Synergy from Telelogic
(not much better).

Does good ol' Poly-Vinyl Chloride System have a command line
interface? If so, then you can just wrapper it with IO::popen and
expect. Unfortunately, it has not been on my machine for a year or
two now, and all memories have faded into blissful obscurity.

Blessings,

I didn't know people still used PVCS. Wow. You made my day. :>
We switched to Perforce from PVCS about 5 years ago and the day we
switched was a great day indeed.
It's not what you wanted to hear, but I have a feeling you probably
won't find many other people using PVCS. :frowning:

Good luck!

Wait, you migrated *to* Change Synergy?

Source control gets worse than that?

When we switched from Synergy to Subversion, the clouds broke, sun
started to shine, and lambs and kittens started playing in the blooming
meadows around our office ....

There is nothing (I repeat: NOTHING) that is worse than PVCS.

Ahh yes, Synergy. I can't say enough good things about it :wink:

The little goup I work with gets to use subversion and Trac, though.
We were grandfathered in before the big switch to Synergy took place.
We were the lucky ones.

We are currently using PVCS as well, with rumors of switching to Perforce
sometime.... In response to your question though PVCS has command line
support so you could write something yourself around Ruby. Currently there
isn't anything since PVCS is slowly being phased out.

ENDEVOR.

Trust me. Nothing is worse than ENDEVOR. Not even PVCS.
