Thanks, I know about (X)emacs capabilities, I use it all the time myself.
But I was looking for something more standalone, that possibly
integrates with tkdiff. Not all our users use (x)emacs, and they might
find the learning curve less user friendly than driving rcs from the
command line.

Any other pointers?

Emacs?  SCNR.

But seriously -- emacs AFAIK has support for RCS, SCCS, and CVS
(and mice, and menus, and colors, and many platforms to run on,
and development tools, and scripting, and much more -- you can
even manipulate files with it:).

Which reminds me of the old saying "Emacs is a nice operating
system, but UNIX definitely has the better editor." :>

     If you don't understand or are scared by any of the above
             ask your parents or an adult to help you.
