NAME
  rmdel - Removes a delta from a Source Code Control System (SCCS) file

SYNOPSIS

  rmdel -rSID file ...	| -

  The rmdel command removes the delta specified by SID from each named SCCS
  file.

FLAGS

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

DESCRIPTION

  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.

  If you specify a directory in place of file, rmdel performs the requested
  actions on all SCCS files (those with filenames 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 command con-
  tinues to take input until it reads an End-of-File character.

EXAMPLES

  To remove delta 1.3 from the SCCS file s.test.c, enter:

       rmdel -r1.3 s.test.c


EXIT VALUES

  The rmdel command returns the following exit values:

    +  0       Successful completion

    +  >0      An error occurred
