I haven't used VMS for a long time, but it's odd that this example came up,
because I remember this behaviour vividly. I don't know if this was the VMS
version, default configuration, or what, but you didn't need any special
effort to see the revisions - a simple directory listing showed all the
different file versions. If I did 25 edits on a FORTRAN program, I saw 25
files. Since the FS could have presented info any way it saw fit, these
could have been anything from 25 physical files (different full versions)
all the way to one file presented as 25 virtual revisions.

I didn't know, and I didn't care. It was just extremely irritating. :-)
Please don't duplicate this behaviour. :-)

I agree. From what I have heard about VMS, if you just typed 'vi foo.c'
you would get the latest rev, but you could also type 'vi foo.c:27' to
get rev 27 of foo.c. Obviously one of those helper progs would list the
revs, presumably with the date of creation, etc.
