Removes the delta SID from the SCCS file. This flag is required.
Path name of an existing SCCS file from which you want to remove the
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 com-
mand continues to take input until it reads an End-of-File character.
The rmdel command removes the delta specified by SID from each named SCCS
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 direc-
tory, or you must be the user who created the delta you want to remove.
The rmdel command returns the following exit values:
0 Successful completion.
>>0 An error occurred.
To remove delta 1.3 from the SCCS file s.test.c, enter:
rmdel -r 1.3 s.test.c
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 multi-
byte characters in arguments and input files).
Determines the locale for the format and contents of diagnostic mes-
sages written to standard error.
Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing of
