      unget - undo a previous get of an SCCS file

      unget [-r SID] [-s] [-n] file ...

      The unget command undoes the effect of a get -e done prior to creating
      the intended new delta.  If file is a directory name, unget treats
      each file in the directory as a file to be processed, except that
      non-SCCS files and unreadable files are silently ignored.	 If - is
      specified for file, the standard input is read with each line being
      taken as the name of an SCCS file to be processed.  Refer to sact(1),
      which describes how to determine what deltas are currently binding for
      an s-file.

      unget recognizes the following options and command-line arguments.
      Options and arguments apply independently to each named file.

	   -r SID      Uniquely identifies which delta is no longer wanted
		       (this would have been specified by get as the ``new
		       delta'').  This option is necessary only if two or
		       more outstanding gets for editing on the same SCCS
		       file were done by the same person (login name).
		       unget prints a diagnostic message if the specified
		       SID is ambiguous, or if it is required but not
		       present on the command line (see sact(1)).

	   -s	       Silent option.  Suppress printing the intended
		       delta's SID on the standard output.

	   -n	       Retain the file deposited in the current directory by
		       the previous get.  Normally this file is removed by

    Environment Variables
      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If 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

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting,
      unget behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".
      See environ(5).

    International Code Set Support
      Single-byte and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

      Use sccshelp(1) for explanations.

      Only the user who did the corresponding get -e can execute unget.	 Any
      other user must either use su to change user ID to that user (see
      su(1)), or edit the p-file directly (which can be done either by the
      s-file owner or a user who has appropriate privileges).

      p-file		  See delta(1).
      g-file		  See delta(1).
