2.1.6 State option

Some commands accept an option of the form -sstate to specify a state (see Invoking ci, see Invoking co). For frob (see Invoking rcs), you can also specify a revision. For log (see Invoking rlog), you can specify more than one state (see Delim-separated list).

RCS uses Exp (for “experimental”) as the default state, but does not attach any meaning to it or any state you choose. Other common states are Rel (for “release”), Prod (for “production”), Stable, and so on. A state should be an id (“identifier”, see File format grammar).
