CB UNIX: DevOps before it was cool - jkl - 29-06-2021

At least Columbus UNIX - an internally used UNIX at Bell Labs - seems to have come with the allofc command which I could not find in any other system.

Quote:The allofc utility program was created to simplify the update/upgrade procedures. Allofc permits a sequence of UNIX commands to be performed in some or all office and type directories.

Arguably, its usage seems to be less intuitive than you'd think; still looks much less like a big pile of webshit poo than what "modern" "developers" call "DevOps".

The man page claims that allofc came as a part of (a version of) SCCS which makes sense, in a way. I wonder if it has spread into other Unices at some point in time.
