ClearCase Support: Creating Elements


Ever wonder how to add a file to source control in ClearCase from the command line. Here's how. First, check out the directory where you want to create a new file in a VOB. Second, run this command:

cleartool mkelem -ci -nc FILE_NAME

Finally, check in the new elementís parent directory.

If you want to create a new empty directory in the VOB, then run this command instead:

cleartool mkelem -ci -eltype directory -nc DIRECTORY_NAME
