Correct the comments in ClearCase

Since it's so important to give good comments for your changes. How to correct the unsuitable comments for a file you have already checked in or a label you have already created? Do we have the change to make the mistakes right?

Yes, of course. The answer is using the command chevent. 8-) The command chevent can replace or append the comments for the existing events. Its default behavior is to append existing comments.

For instance, correct the bad comments for the existing label my_label:

cleartool chevent -replace lbtype:my_label@my_vobs

For more information, just ask the clearcase man ( cleartool man chevent ).
