ClearCase Support: Advanced Config Specs (Part 1)

Ever wanted to rollback the clock to see what was in the VOB in the past without using an old label in your Config Spec? Well you can, with the "Time Rules" feature of Config Specs. For instance, let's say you wanted to see how all the VOBs appeared as if it was still 11AM on March 5th, then you can use this config spec:

element * CHECKEDOUT
element * /main/LATEST -time 5-Mar.11:00

There are a lot of options with this "-time" argument. To see the complete list of these "Time Rules", please read the online man page for Config Specs using this command:

cleartool man config_spec
