PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       rmdel — remove a delta from an SCCS file (DEVELOPMENT)

SYNOPSIS         top

       rmdel −r SID file...

DESCRIPTION         top

       The rmdel utility shall remove the delta specified by the SID from
       each named SCCS file. The delta to be removed shall be the most
       recent delta in its branch in the delta chain of each named SCCS
       file. In addition, the application shall ensure that the SID
       specified is not that of a version being edited for the purpose of
       making a delta; that is, if a p-file (see get(1p)) exists for the
       named SCCS file, the SID specified shall not appear in any entry of
       the p-file.

       Removal of a delta shall be restricted to:

        1. The user who made the delta

        2. The owner of the SCCS file

        3. The owner of the directory containing the SCCS file

OPTIONS         top

       The rmdel utility shall conform to the Base Definitions volume of
       POSIX.1‐2008, Section 12.2, Utility Syntax Guidelines.

       The following option shall be supported:

       −r SID    Specify the SCCS identification string (SID) of the delta
                 to be deleted.

OPERANDS         top

       The following operand shall be supported:

       file      A pathname of an existing SCCS file or a directory. If file
                 is a directory, the rmdel utility shall behave as though
                 each file in the directory were specified as a named file,
                 except that non-SCCS files (last component of the pathname
                 does not begin with s.)  and unreadable files shall be
                 silently ignored.

                 If exactly one file operand appears, and it is '−', the
                 standard input shall be read; each line of the standard
                 input is taken to be the name of an SCCS file to be
                 processed. Non-SCCS files and unreadable files shall be
                 silently ignored.

STDIN         top

       The standard input shall be a text file used only when the file
       operand is specified as '−'.  Each line of the text file shall be
       interpreted as an SCCS pathname.

INPUT FILES         top

       The SCCS files shall be files of unspecified format.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES         top

       The following environment variables shall affect the execution of
       rmdel:

       LANG      Provide a default value for the internationalization
                 variables that are unset or null. (See the Base Definitions
                 volume of POSIX.1‐2008, Section 8.2, Internationalization
                 Variables for the precedence of internationalization
                 variables used to determine the values of locale
                 categories.)

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

       LC_CTYPE  Determine 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
                 Determine the locale that should be used to affect the
                 format and contents of diagnostic messages written to
                 standard error.

       NLSPATH   Determine the location of message catalogs for the
                 processing of LC_MESSAGES.

ASYNCHRONOUS EVENTS         top

       Default.

STDOUT         top

       Not used.

STDERR         top

       The standard error shall be used only for diagnostic messages.

OUTPUT FILES         top

       The SCCS files shall be files of unspecified format. During
       processing of a file, a temporary x-file, as described in admin(1p),
       may be created and deleted; a locking z-file, as described in
       get(1p), may be created and deleted.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION         top

       None.

EXIT STATUS         top

       The following exit values shall be returned:

        0    Successful completion.

       >0    An error occurred.

CONSEQUENCES OF ERRORS         top

       Default.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE         top

       None.

EXAMPLES         top

RATIONALE         top

       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS         top
