Associate the symbolic name name with the branch or revision rev.  Delete the symbolic name if  both  : and rev are omitted; otherwise, print an error message if name is  already  associated  with  another number.   If rev is symbolic, it is expanded before association.  A rev consisting of a  branch  number followed by a . stands for the current latest revision in the branch.  A : with an empty  rev  stands for  the  current  latest  revision  on the default branch,   normally   the   trunk.    For   example, rcs -nname: RCS/*  associates name with the current latest revision of all the named  RCS  files;  this contrasts  with rcs -nname:$ RCS/* which associates name with the revision numbers extracted from  keyword strings in the corresponding working files.
