       bk admin - administer BitKeeper files

       bk admin options [<file> ... | -]

       The  bk admin command is used to administer BitKeeper files.  There are
       options for changing per file features, modifying file metadata,  veri-
       fying  file  checksum and metadata, changing the file compression mode,
       and/or recalculating the file checksum.

       -C[<id>]    set or remove the changeset file string in  the  1.0  delta
                   (very rarely used, not recommended).  The string is used to
                   associate the file with a particular  repository  idea  and
                   usually the same as the output of bk id.
       -D          remove  the  delta changeset marks (rarely used--not recom-
       -f<flag>    set a per file flag.  Many of the flags may be set automat-
                   ically  upon  file  creation by adding an entry to the Bit-
                   mation  on  how  to  do so.  The possible values for <flag>

                   BITKEEPER    mark the file as a BitKeeper file (very rarely
                                used, not recommended)
                   EOLN_NATIVE  use  the operating system's native end-of-line
                                termination (i.e., \r\n on Windows and  \n  on
                                all  other  platforms.)  EOLN_NATIVE is set to
                                "on" by default.
                   EOLN_UNIX    use the UNIX  end-of-line  termination  (i.e.,
                                \n) on all platforms.
                   EOLN_WINDOWS use the Windows end-of-line termination (i.e.,
                                \r\n) on all platforms.
                   EXPAND1      expand keywords in first  line  that  contains
                                keywords  only  (printf conflicts) (May be set
                                in BitKeeper/etc/config).
                   NOMERGE      do not attempt to automerge this  file;  treat
                                it  as  if  it  were  a binary file and always
                                force a choice between the  local  and  remote
                                versions of the file.
                   RCS          expand  RCS  keywords,  i.e.,  $keyword$  etc.
                                (May be set in BitKeeper/etc/config).
                   SCCS         expand SCCS keywords, i.e., %K% etc.  (Setting
                                this   in  BitKeeper/etc/config  applies  this
                                behavior to all subsequently created files; it
                                does  not  affect existing files! You must use
                                bk admin to explicitly on existing files.)
       -F<flag>    delete flag <flag>, reverting to default behavior.
       -h          check s.file structure in general, but limited to ATT  SCCS
       -hh         as above, but also check BitKeeper specific (in addition to
                   ATT SCCS) features.
       -hhh        as above, but also check time stamps.
       -i[<file>]  read initial text from <file> (default stdin).
       -q          run quietly.
       -y<comment> make <comment> be  the  checkin  comment  for  the  initial
                   checkin (only valid with -i).
       -z          recalculate file checksum.
       -Z<alg>     compress  stored  s.file  with <alg>.  Compression is on by
                   default because the space savings are substantial and there
                   is little or no performance difference.  The default may be
                   set in BitKeeper/etc/config.  <alg> may be:

                   gzip        like gzip(1)
                   none        no compression

       This command does way too much and is likely to  be  split
       apart.  Do not depend on these options for scripts.
