       rmdel - remove a delta from an SCCS file

       rmdel -r files

       The command removes the delta specified by the SID from each named SCCS file.  The delta to be removed must be the most recent delta in its
       branch in the delta chain of each named SCCS file.  In addition, the  specified delta must not be that of a version being  edited  for  the
       purpose	of  making  a delta, for example, if a p-file exists for the named SCCS file, the  specified delta must not appear in any entry of
       the p-file).  For further information, see

       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 s.)  and unreadable files are silently ignored.  If - is given as the name, the standard input
       is read and 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
       are silently ignored.

       Certain permissions are necessary to remove a delta.  If you make a delta or own the file and directory, you can remove it.

       -rSID   Specifies the delta version number.

       Use for explanations.

sccs-rmdel, rmdel - remove a delta from an SCCS file SYNOPSIS
/usr/ccs/bin/rmdel -rsid s.filename... DESCRIPTION
The rmdel utility removes the delta specified by the SCCS delta ID (SID) supplied with -r. The delta to be removed must be the most recent (leaf) delta in its branch. In addition, the SID must not be that of a version checked out for editing: it must not appear in any entry of the version lock file (p.file). If you created the delta, or, if you own the file and directory and have write permission, you can remove it with rmdel. If a directory name is used in place of the s.filename argument, the rmdel command applies to all s.files in that directory. Unreadable s.files produce an error; processing continues with the next file (if any). The use of `-' as the s.filename argument indicates that the names of files are to be read from the standard input, one s.file per line. OPTIONS
The following option is supported: -rsid Remove the version corresponding to the indicated SID (delta). ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables that affect the execution of rmdel: LANG, LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LC_MES- SAGES, and NLSPATH. FILES
p.file permissions file s.file history file z.file temporary copy of the s.file ATTRIBUTES
