! .HL 1 Revision history
! This is the only bliss module that uses a straight text revision history.
! This is because the macros for doing it more neatly are later in the file.
! .hl 1 Description
! This require file (or library) defines the macros for easy edit
! history and version number definition in the style chosen for the
! facilities listed above.
! .hl 1 The edit history
! Edit (%O'22', '29-Oct-82', 'David Dyer-Bennet')
! %( Add an optional trailing field to the EDIT macro to hold "reason".
! Put in proper edit history!!!!!
! Files: VERSION.REQ
! new_version (2, 0)
! Edit (%O'36', '11-Apr-84', 'Sandy Clemens')
! %( Put all Version 2 DIX development files under edit control. Some of
! the files listed below have major code edits, or are new modules. Others
! have relatively minor changes, such as cleaning up a comment.
! FILES: COMDIX.VAX-COM, COMPDX.CTL, DIXCST.BLI, DIXDEB.BLI,
! DIXDN.BLI (NEW), DIXFBN.BLI, DIXFP.BLI, DIXGBL.BLI, DIXGEN.BLI,

! .hl 1 Edit history standards
! The DIL consists primarily of calls on two other facilities, the DIX
! and the DIT. Each of the three facilities will have its own revision
! history and version number. This is desirable because the DIX and DIT
! will be used independently of the DIL (in particular, they will
! probably be the basis for the Data Interchange Utility).
! Each source file including batch control files and command procedures
! will contain comments identifying which facility it belongs to, what
! edits have been installed in it, and its current edit level. Putting
! the build procedures under edit control should reduce the number of
! times they are mysteriously broken. Auxiliary source files, things
! like the DIL interface support files and the program to produce the
! DIX interface support files, will also be included under the facility
! edit history.
! Edit history information should be stored in chronological
! order (oldest first). The new_version macro should be used to show
! which edit levels correspond to which major and minor version numbers.
! Source files for program modules need some additional edit
! information: they must produce a word containing their edit number in
! OWN storage, called MODVER or fac$g_module_version (only use the long
! name if long names are fully supported on the system in use).
! Edit history information and version numbers should be extracted into
! the internals document from each file.
! Each facility will have a master revision history module (called
! xxxhst.bli, where xxx is the facility code) which produces a global
! literal containing the full version number (in the DEC-20 version
! number format, since VAX doesn't have one). This global literal will
! be called xxx$k_version, with a pseudonym of XXX%VE.
! All possible subsets of modules that might be loaded must declare an
! OWN word that is initialized to this version information. This word
! should be called xxxver or xxx$g_version, where xxx is the facility
! name. The easiest way to achieve this is to put it into each module.
! Each module should put in own storage both its own latest revision and
! the overall version of the facility that it was part of.
! The macro mark_versions (facility) defined below will make the
! two own variables described above for you. To use pseudonyms, declare
! the long names to be macros expanding to the short names.
! The test systems will have their own edit histories. This will be
! maintained in a handy text file. The test systems don't require the
! same level of care in this as the released software, because we do not
! have the requirement of being able to determine what version is being
! run from an EXE file some customer produced.
! BLISS modules must declare their IDENT to be the revision level they
! The text string **edit_version** (or **EDIT**) should be used to flag
! each location in each file where version information is likely to have
! to be changed (the IDENT attribute, the start of the revision history).
! When making edits, be sure to update the idents on the files. Be sure
! to put in comments showing what edit you're making (use the number).
! Be sure to list the modules changed in the edit history comment. Be
! sure to use the edit number in giving ALU the reason for touching sources.

! .hl 1 Version number definitions
! The concept of version numbers doesn't seem to exist on VMS and therefore
! is not defined in STARLET. Therefore, there is no point in putting the TOPS
! side of the version definitions into STAR36. Instead, the definitions for
! both systems appear in this module.
