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:  XCU5.0

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

OPTIONS

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

OPERANDS

  file
      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 com-
      mand 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 direc-
  tory,	or you must be the user	who created the	delta you want to remove.







EXIT STATUS

  The rmdel command returns the	following exit values:

  0   Successful completion.

  >>0  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:

  LANG
      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.

  LC_ALL
      If set to	a non-empty string value, overrides the	values of all the
      other internationalization variables.

  LC_CTYPE
      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).

  LC_MESSAGES
      Determines the locale for	the format and contents	of diagnostic mes-
      sages written to standard	error.

  NLSPATH
      Determines the location of message catalogues for	the processing of
      LC_MESSAGES.
