Retrieve a text version of an SCCS
The retrieved text file (also called the g-file)

For each SCCS

Retrieve file prog.c for editing; a subsequent delta creates a branch at version 1.3:
get -e -b -r1.3 s.prog.c
Retrieve file prog.c; contents will exclude changes made after 2:30 p.m. on June 1, 1990 (except for deltas 2.6 and 2.7, which are included):
get -c'90/06/01 14:30:00' -i'2.6,2.7' s.prog.c
Display the contents of s.text.c (all revisions except 1.1 - 1.7):
get -p -x1.1-1.7 s.text.c
