The PVCS action creates a step to automate access to the Serena PVCS Version Manager version control system.  This action provides several screens for configuring repository commands.


When the step is built, this action invokes one of the PVCS command-line executables to perform the requested operation.

This action has been tested with PVCS Version Manager version 6 and may work with other versions as well.  See the PVCS Version Manager Command-Line Reference Guide, Quick Reference Guide, and PCLI User's Guide and Reference for more details on the available commands and flags.



See the PVCS.bld sample for a project utilizing this action.
See the ContinuousIntegration.bld sample for a sample of incorporating PVCS into continuous integration builds.
By default, this action is not displayed (existing steps will still be displayed in the Step panes and will build normally).  To show all hidden actions, right-click in the Actions pane and choose Show Hidden.
