edit [ -a
action] [ -l | -R ] [
The edit command is used in conjunction with watch to permit a more coordinated (serialized) development process. It makes the file writable and sends out an advisory to any users that have requested them. A temporary watch is established and will be removed automatically when either the unedit or the commit command is issued.
The standard meanings of the common client options -l and -R apply. The only additional option that can be used with the edit command is -a actions. This option is used to specify the actions to watch. The legal values for actions are described in the entry for the watch command.
