 +===== Recover from errors =====
 +==== rcs: RCS file RCS/XXX,v is in use ====
  
 +After a crash of one of the rcs binaries, the folloing situation might arise:
 +
 +  ~ $ rcs -u1.1.1.1 abcd
 +  rcs: RCS file RCS/abce,v is in use
 +  ~ $
 +  ​
 +The cure is to remove a semaphore file:
 +
 +  ~ % ls -la RCS
 +  total 8
 +  -r--r--r-- 1 user users    0 Nov 19 14:00 ,abcd,
 +  drwxr-xr-x 2 user users 4096 Nov 19 14:00 ./
 +  drwxr-xr-x 3 user users 4096 Nov 19 13:59 ../
 +  -r--r--r-- 1 user users 2665 Nov 19 14:00 abcd,v
 +  ~ $ rm -i RCS/,abcd,
 +  rm: remove regular empty file `RCS/,​abcd,'?​ y
 +  ~ $ rcs -u1.1.1.1 grub
 +  RCS file: RCS/abcd,v
 +  1.1.1.1 unlocked
 +  done
