ClearCase Support: Drawing a Merge Arrow


Have you ever wanted to just draw a merge arrow without actually merging two ClearCase versions together? If so, here is how to do it from the command line.

cleartool mkhlink -unidir Merge FROM_VERSION TO_VERSION

For instance, here are three actual draw merge arrow commands.


cleartool mkhlink -unidir Merge /vob/test/a.txt@@/main/branch/1 /vob/test/a.txt@@/main/4

cleartool mkhlink -unidir Merge /vob/test/a.txt@@/main/branch/1 /vob/test/a.txt@@/main/LATEST

cleartool mkhlink -unidir Merge /vob/test/a.txt@@/main/branch/1 /vob/test/a.txt@@/main/CHECKEDOUT


Don't forget to verify that the merge arrow was applied correctly.
