unget — undo a previous get of an SCCS file ( DEVELOPMENT)
unget [−ns] [−r SID] file...
The unget utility shall reverse the effect of a get −e done prior to creating the intended new delta.
The unget utility shall conform to the Base Definitions volume of POSIX.1‐2008, Section 12.2, Utility Syntax Guidelines.
The following options shall be supported:
- −r SID
- Uniquely identify which delta is no longer intended. (This would have been specified by get as the new delta.) The use of this option is necessary only if two or more outstanding get commands for editing on the same SCCS file were done by the same person (login name).
- Suppress the writing to standard output of the intended delta's SID.
The following operands shall be supported:
- Retain the file that was obtained by get, which would normally be removed from the current directory.
- A pathname of an existing SCCS file or a directory. If file is a directory, the unget 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.
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.
Any SCCS files processed shall be files of an unspecified format.
The following environment variables shall affect the execution of unget:
If exactly one file
operand appears, and it is '−'
, the standard input shall be read; each line of the standard input shall be taken to be the name of an SCCS file to be processed. Non-SCCS files and unreadable files shall be silently ignored.
- 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.)
- If set to a non-empty string value, override the values of all the other internationalization variables.
- 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).
Determine the locale that should be used to affect the format and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.
The standard output shall consist of a line for each file, in the following format:
- Determine the location of message catalogs for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.
If there is more than one named file or if a directory or standard input is named, each pathname shall be written before each of the preceding lines:
"%s\n", <SID removed from file>
The standard error shall be used only for diagnostic messages.
Any SCCS files updated shall be files of an unspecified format. During processing of a file, a locking z-file, as described in get, and a q-file (a working copy of the p-file), may be created and deleted. The p-file and g-file, as described in get, shall be deleted.
The following exit values shall be returned:
- Successful completion.
