Source Control Interface on UNIX Platforms

If you are a new user to source control, it is recommended that you select a source control system that is part of the MathWorks® source control integration with the Current Folder browser, such as Subversion® or Git™. For more information, see SVN and Git Source Control Integration topics.

If you use a source control system to manage your files, you can check MATLAB® program files and Simulink® models, and Stateflow® charts into and out of the source control system from within the MATLAB, Simulink, and Stateflow products.

The source control interface supports four popular source control systems, as well as a custom option:

  • ClearCase® software from IBM® Rational®

  • Concurrent Version System (CVS)

  • ChangeMan® and PVCS® software from Serena®

  • Revision Control System (RCS)

  • Custom option — Allows you to build your own interface if you use a different source control system. For details, see the reference page for customverctrl.

Perform source control interface actions for a single file using menu items in the MATLAB Editor, a Simulink model window, or a Stateflow chart window. To perform source control actions on multiple files, use the Current Folder browser. Alternatively, run source control functions in the Command Window, which provide some options not supported with the menu items.
