Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows:
unget: XPG4, XPG4-UNIX

Each option or group of options applies independently to each named
Prevents the automatic deletion of the file obtained by
get, the g-file. This option lets you retain the edited version
of the file without making a delta.
Specifies the new delta that would have been created by the
next use of the
command. You must use this option
if you have two or more pending deltas to the file under the same login name.
You can look at the p-file to see if you have more than one delta pending
to a particular SID under the same login name. The SID specification must
unambiguously specify only one SID to discard, or
displays an error message and stops running.
Suppresses displaying the deleted SID.
Pathname of an existing SCCS file or directory. If you specify a directory unget performs the requested actions on all SCCS files (those files with the s. prefix).
The unget command lets you restore a g-file created with a get -e before the new delta is created, and therefore discard the changes (see the get and delta commands).
The unget command lets you reverse the effect of a get -e command done prior to creating the intended new delta.
[Compaq] The file name or names refer to the SCCS s-files, not the g-files. If the s-files are not in the working directory, the names must include the path to the SCCS directory.
During processing of
file, a locking z-file,
and a q-file (a working copy of the p-file), may be created and deleted. The
p-file and g-file are deleted. See
for the descriptions and usage
of these files.
The following exit values are returned.
An error occurred.
To discard the changes you have made to an SCCS file after doing a get -e, enter: unget s.prog.c The previous example illustrates use of unget for an s-file in the working directory. The following example illustrates use of the command for an s-file in a different directory: unget /usr/projects/myproject/SCCS/s.prog.c
The following environment variables affect the execution of
Provides a default value for the internationalization variables
that are unset or null. If
is unset or null, the corresponding value from the implementation-specific
default locale is used. If any of the internationalization variables contain
an invalid setting,
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, as opposed to multibyte,
characters in arguments and input files).
Determines the locale that should be used to affect the format
and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.
Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing
