ERROR [SCCS/s.string]: writable `string' exists (ge4)


An attempt was made to sccs(1) edit a file that is writable, probably because it was already checked out.


Run sccs(1) info to see who has the file checked out. If it is you, go ahead and edit it. If it is somebody else, ask that person to check-in the file.
