NAME

rmdel - Removes a delta from a Source Code Control System (SCCS) file  

SYNOPSIS

rmdel -r SID file...|-


 

STANDARDS

Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows:

rmdel:  XPG4, XPG4-UNIX

Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information about industry standards and associated tags.
 

OPTIONS

Removes the delta SID from the SCCS file. This flag is required.
 

OPERANDS

Path name of an existing SCCS file from which you want to remove the delta.

If you specify a directory in place of file, rmdel performs the requested actions on all SCCS files (those with file names that have the s. prefix).
If you specify a - (dash) in place of file, rmdel reads standard input, and interprets each line as the name of an SCCS file. The rmdel command continues to take input until it reads an End-of-File character.
 

DESCRIPTION

The rmdel command removes the delta specified by SID from each named SCCS file.

You can remove only the most recently created delta in a branch, or the latest trunk delta if it has no branches. In addition, the SID you specify must not be a version currently being edited for the purpose of making a delta. To remove a delta, you must either own the SCCS file and the directory, or you must be the user who created the delta you want to remove.
 

EXIT STATUS

The rmdel command returns the following exit values: Successful completion. An error occurred.
 

EXAMPLES

To remove delta 1.3 from the SCCS file s.test.c, enter: rmdel -r 1.3 s.test.c


 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The following environment variables affect the execution of rmdel: Provides a default value for the internationalization variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset or null, the corresponding value from the default locale is used. If any of the internationalization variables contain an invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of the variables had been defined. If set to a non-empty string value, overrides the values of all the other internationalization variables. Determines the locale for the interpretation of sequences of bytes of text data as characters (for example, single-byte as opposed to multibyte characters in arguments and input files). Determines the locale for the format and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error. Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.
