I previously showed you how to use a shell script with Rational Clearcase, to alert you when a new branch type was created.
In this post, I will show you how to use a Perl script to enforce Clearcase labeling conventions. This example is directed toward Clearcase on UNIX (i.e. Solaris or similar) and assumes you have Perl installed, working and have a basic knowledge of how to program in Perl. It is a reworked version of the windows script supplied by IBM on Developerworks.
This is a long post, but a good one if you are a new clearcase admin who needs to enforce label names.
