RCS is the Revision Control System, a popular Unix command line system of version control, later migrated to other platforms and given graphic user interfaces. It also controls the actual deltas, changes, of text files, in CVS, the Concurrent Versions System. It is usually cited as introduced by Walter F. Tichy in Software Practice and Experience, July 1985.
