    Is there an alternative to applying lables one at a time using Clearcase view? I'd like to avoid doing them one at a time since we have 100s.

    Hi Riley,

    You asked:

       "Is there an alternative to applying lables one at a time using Clearcase view? I'd like to avoid doing them one at a time since we have 100s"

    The answer is:

       Yes, you can apply a label to a mass of file/directorry elements, in fact it is the most common way that labels are applied.

                    cleartool mklabel –nc  THE_LABEL *                   (to get all files in a directory)

           or

                    cleartool mklabel  -nc –rec THE_LABEL .            (note the '.' at the end - to get the current directory and all files and directories recursively)

    Sounds like you are a new user of ClearCase,  there is FREE  ClearCase online training here:
