May of the Editors and Working environments like MS
Visual Studio, MultiEdit, Macromedia ColdFusion
Visual SlickEdit, Metrowerks Codewarrier and others now
supports SCC interface.

In few words, when you have sources controlled by
some version control system like (CVS, PVCS, Clearcase,
etc) you have possibility to make some operations like
CheckOut/Checkin (others) directly from Editor.

Here it is couple of links:

    In the case of CVS, there is CVS.vbs script in the Scripts
    folder, that can do some basic operations. You can make your
    custom tools that call cvs.exe directly too. And you can do
    the same for other version control systems too. Surely most
    of them support execution from command line with
    parameters, and that mean that you can use them with syn
    too...

    About ready SCC interface - current syn architecture does
    not support plugins. We plan to change this in next version
    but it will not be so soon. So if calling external executable or
    active scripting features of syn cannot help you, sorry. There
    will be SCC support some day...

    For those who are tracking this.
    This is was my request.

    I have made script to work with ClearCase via Clearcase
    Automation Library(CAL), which is mostly enough.

    You can find it in "Patches" area.
