Description

checkin('filename','comments','comment_text') checks in the file named filename to the source control system. Use the full path for filename and include the file extension. You must save the file before checking it in, but the file can be open or closed. The comment_text is a MATLAB® string containing checkin comments for the source control system. You must supply comments and comment_text.

checkin({'filename1','filename2'},'comments','comment_text') checks in the files filename1 through filenamen to the source control system. Use the full paths for the files and include file extensions. Comments apply to all files checked in.

checkin('filename','comments', 'comment_text','option','value') provides additional checkin options. For multiple file names, use an array of strings instead of filename, that is, {'filename1','filename2',...}. Options apply to all file names. The option and value arguments are shown in the following table.

checkin('/myserver/myfiles/clock.m','comments',... 
'Adjustment for leapyear')

Check In Multiple Files

Check two files into the source control system, using the same comment for each:

checkin({'/myserver/myfiles/clock.m', ... 
'/myserver/myfiles/calendar.m'},'comments',... 
'Adjustment for leapyear')

Check In a File and Keep It Checked Out

Check the file /myserver/myfiles/clock.m into the source control system and keep the file checked out:

checkin('/myserver/myfiles/clock.m','comments',... 
'Adjustment for leapyear','lock','on')
