We use PVCS Version Manager. Whenever code is altered in any way, a new
version is created, which is permanently available for reference. You can
run reports that compare different versions to see what the differences are.
As others have indicated, this is not a fool-proof process, but still pretty
useful. FWIW, the guy in my dept. who administers this software is very
happy with it. Good luck!

Dear List-

We have a problem at my company of rogue programmers
constantly making code changes without telling anyone.
Our new manager wants to somehow get a handle on this.
I'm wondering if anyone has used specific software
programs that track code changes-
