BasketCase is a (Ruby) script that encapsulates the Rational ClearCase command-line interface, cleartool, making it (slightly) more comfortable for developers more used to non-locking version-control systems such as CVS or Subversion.
BasketCase can help you:
usage: basketcase <command> [<options>] GLOBAL OPTIONS -t/--test test/dry-run/simulate mode (ie. don't actually do anything) -d/--debug debug cleartool interaction COMMANDS (type 'basketcase help <command>' for details) % list, ls, status, stat % lsco % diff % log, history % tree, vtree % update, up % checkin, ci, commit % checkout, co, edit % uncheckout, unco, revert % add % remove, rm, delete, del % move, mv, rename % auto-checkin, auto-ci, auto-commit % auto-uncheckout, auto-unco, auto-revert % auto-sync, auto-addrm % help
Is as easy as:
sudo gem install basketcase
In mid-2006, Mike Williams worked on a client project which, despite the team’s wishes, was burdened with ClearCase as it’s source-code control system.
The team was attempting to use Agile practices such as collective code ownership, refactoring and continuous-integration, and ClearCase was in the way:
Mike wrote BasketCase in frustration.
