NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       rcsclean - clean up working files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       rcsclean [options] [file...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Use  subst  style keyword substitution when retrieving the
       revision for comparison. See co(1) for  details.   Do  not
       actually  remove any files or unlock any revisions.  Using
       this option will tell you what rcsclean would  do  without
       actually  doing it.  Do not log the actions taken on standard
 output.  This option has no effect other than  specifying
 the revision for comparison.  Unlock the revision if
       it is locked and no difference is found.  Emulate RCS version
 n. See co(1) for details.  Use suffixes to characterize
 RCS files. See ci(1) for details.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       rcsclean removes working files that were checked  out  and
       never modified. For each file given, rcsclean compares the
       working file and a revision in the corresponding RCS file.
       If  it  finds a difference, it does nothing. Otherwise, it
       first unlocks the revision if the -u option is given,  and
       then  removes  the working file unless the working file is
       writable and the revision is locked.  It logs its  actions
       by  outputting the corresponding rcs -u and rm -f commands
       on the standard output.

       If no file is given, all  working  files  in  the  current
       directory  are  cleaned.  Pathnames matching an RCS suffix
       denote RCS files; all others denote working  files.  Names
       are paired as explained in ci(1).

       The  number  of  the revision to which the working file is
       compared may be attached to any of the options -n, -q, -r,
       or  -u. If no revision number is specified, then if the -u
       option is given and the caller has  one  revision  locked,
       rcsclean  uses  that revision; otherwise rcsclean uses the
       latest revision on the default branch, normally the  root.

       rcsclean  is  useful  for  clean targets in Makefiles. See
       also rcsdiff(1), which prints  out  the  differences,  and
       ci(1),  which  normally asks whether to check in a file if
       it was not changed.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       At least one file must be given  in  older  Unix  versions
       that  do  not provide the needed directory scanning operations.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       rcsclean  *.c  *.h

       removes all working files  ending  in  or  that  were  not
       changed since their checkout.  rcsclean

       removes  all  working  files in the current directory that
       were not changed since their checkout.

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

       options prepended  to  the  argument  list,  separated  by
       spaces.   A backslash escapes spaces within an option. The
       RCSINIT options are prepended to  the  argument  lists  of
       most  RCS commands. Useful RCSINIT options include -q, -V,
       and -x.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The exit status is zero if and only if all operations were
       successful.   Missing  working  files  and  RCS  files are
       silently ignored.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       rcsclean accesses files much as ci(1) does.
