rmdel - remove a delta from an SCCS file
rmdel -r SID file ...
The rmdel command removes the delta specified by the SID from each
named SCCS file. The delta to be removed must be the newest (most
recent) delta in its branch in the delta chain of each named SCCS
file. In addition, the SID specified must not be that of a version
being edited for the purpose of making a delta (i.e., if a p-file (see
get(1)) exists for the named SCCS file, the SID specified must not
appear in any entry of the p-file).
If a directory is named, rmdel behaves as though each file in the
directory were specified as a named file, except that non-SCCS files
(last component of the path name does not begin with s.) and
unreadable files are silently ignored. If a name of - is given, the
standard input is read; each line of the standard input is taken to be
the name of an SCCS file or directory to be processed; non-SCCS files
and unreadable files are silently ignored. When -- is specified on
the command line, all following arguments are treated as file names.
The permissions to remove a delta are either (1) if you make a delta
you can remove it; or (2) if you own the file and directory you can
remove a delta.
LC_CTYPE determines the locale for the interpretation of text as
single-byte and/or multi-byte characters.
LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.
LC_MESSAGES also determines the local language equivalent of the
affirmative string ("yes").
If LC_CTYPE or LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is
set to the empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for
each unspecified or empty variable. If LANG is not specified or is
set to the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used
instead of LANG.
If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
rmdel behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".
International Code Set Support
Single-byte and multi-byte character code sets are supported.
