Subject:document control From:Ed Glennon <ed -at- SJ -dot- PTC -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 15 Aug 1996 17:24:35 -0700
I'm trying to figure out if our group should use a document control
product, so that writers have to check files in and out, and we can
maintain different versions of the same file.
So I have these questions:
1. What are the pros and cons of using document control software?
2. What products are available that might be worth checking out?
Any information you have would be helpful. Thanks.
