An RCS file’s contents are described by the grammar below3. Overall, the format is free–format text. In most environments RCS uses the ISO 8859/1 encoding: visible graphic characters are (octal) codes 041–176 and 240–377, and whitespace characters are codes 010–015 and 040.
TODO:  Discuss or point to encoding compatability issues.
