clean up working files
rcsclean program is used to clean up
(remove) files that are not being worked on. Only checked out files from the
current working directory are removed –
rcsclean does not remove files from the RCS
If no file operand is specified,
rcsclean cleans up all working files in the current
rcsclean also supports keyword
substitution – see the
rcs(1) man page for more information.
The following options are supported:
- Specify the keyword substitution mode.
- Dry-run mode. When this option is specified,
rcscleanwill show you what it would normally do without doing it.
- Be quiet about reporting.
- Remove revision rev. If rev
does not match the revision of the currently checked out file,
rcscleanwill do nothing.
- Preserve the modification time of RCS files.
- Unlock the revision if it's currently locked. This is only possible if no changes have been made to the file since it was checked out.
- Print RCS's version number.
- Specify the suffixes for RCS files. Suffixes should be separated by the ‘/’ character.
- Specify the time zone for keyword substitution.
- If set, this variable should contain a list of space-delimited options that are prepended to the argument list.
rcsclean utility exits 0 on
success, and >0 if an error occurs.
Remove all working files (locked or not) in the current directory that were not changed since last checkout:
$ rcsclean -u
ci(1), co(1), ident(1), rcs(1), rcsdiff(1), rcsmerge(1), rlog(1)
