NAME
val - validate SCCS file SYNOPSIS
SID] name] type] files DESCRIPTION
The command reads one or more files to determine whether each file read is an SCCS file meeting the characteristics specified by the optional argument list. Command-line options may appear in any order, and are described below. Options The command recognizes the following options and command-line arguments. The effects of each option apply independently to each specified file. Silent option. Suppress diagnostic messages normally generated on the standard output when an error is encountered while processing any specified file. Check existence of revision SID in file where SID (SCCS IDentification string) is an SCCS delta number. SID is first checked to ensure that it is unambiguous and valid before checking file. For example, is ambiguous because it physically does not exist but implies 1.1, 1.2, etc., which may exist; and are invalid because they have a zero suffix which never appears in a valid delta number. name is compared with the SCCS keyword in file. type is compared with the SCCS keyword in file. Verbose option. Prints additional detailed diagnostic messages on the standard output for any corruption detected while processing each named file. The messages are intended for use with the information contained in sccsfile(4) when fixing the file. file One or more SCCS files to be processed. If is used as a file argument, reads the standard input until an end-of-file condition is encountered. Each line read is independently processed as if it were a command-line argument list. EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
Environment Variables determines the interpretation of text within file as single- and/or multi-byte characters. determines the language in which messages are displayed. If or is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty string, the value of is used as a default for each unspecified or empty variable. If 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, 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. RETURN VALUE
The 8-bit code returned by is a disjunction of the possible errors; i. e., can be interpreted as a bit string where (moving from left to right) set bits are interpreted as follows: Bit Interpretation 0 Missing file argument; 1 Unknown or duplicate option argument; 2 Corrupt SCCS file; 3 Cannot open file or file is not an SCCS file; 4 SID is invalid or ambiguous; 5 SID does not exist; 6 does not match type argument; 7 does not match name argument; Note that can process two or more files on a given command line, and in turn can process multiple command lines (when reading the standard input). In these cases an aggregate code is returned; a logical of the codes generated for each command line and file processed. DIAGNOSTICS
generates diagnostic messages on the standard output for each command line and file processed, and also returns a single 8-bit code upon exit as described earlier under Use the sccshelp(1) command for explanations. SEE ALSO

NAME
rmdel - remove a delta from an SCCS file SYNOPSIS
SID file ... DESCRIPTION
The 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 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 appear in any entry of the p-file). If a directory is named, behaves as though each file in the directory were specified as a named file, except that non-SCCS files (last com- ponent of the path name does not begin with 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. EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
Environment Variables determines the locale for the interpretation of text as single-byte and/or multi-byte characters. determines the language in which messages are displayed. also determines the local language equivalent of the affirmative string ("yes"). If or is not specified in the environment or is set to the empty string, the value of is used as a default for each unspecified or empty variable. If 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, 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. DIAGNOSTICS
