    Command:

    rcsclean

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           rcsclean [options] [ file ... ]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           rcsclean  removes files that are not being worked on.  rcsclean -u also
           unlocks and removes files  that  are  being  worked  on  but  have  not
           changed.
    
           For  each file given, rcsclean compares the working file and a revision
           in the corresponding RCS file.  If it finds a difference, it does noth-
           ing.   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.
    
           Files are paired as explained in ci(1).  If no file is given, all work-
           ing  files in the current directory are cleaned.  Pathnames matching an
           RCS suffix denote RCS files; all others denote working files.
    
           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 num-
           ber 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  rcsd-
           iff(1),  which  prints  out  the differences, and ci(1), which normally
           reverts to the previous revision if a file was not changed.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -ksubst
                  Use subst style keyword substitution when retrieving  the  revi-
                  sion for comparison.  See co(1) for details.
    
           -n[rev]
                  Do not actually remove any files or unlock any revisions.  Using
                  this option will tell you what rcsclean would do  without  actu-
                  ally doing it.
    
           -q[rev]
                  Do not log the actions taken on standard output.
    
           -r[rev]
                  This option has no effect other than specifying the revision for
                  comparison.
    
           -T     Preserve the modification time on the RCS file even if  the  RCS
                  file  changes  because  a lock is removed.  This option can sup-
                  press extensive recompilation caused by a make(1) dependency  of
                  some  other  copy of the working file on the RCS file.  Use this
                  option with care; it can suppress recompilation even when it  is
                  needed,  i.e.  when the lock removal would mean a change to key-
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

                  rcsclean  *.c  *.h
    
           removes  all  working  files  ending  in .c or .h that were not changed
           since their checkout.
    
                  rcsclean
    
           removes all working files  in  the  current  directory  that  were  not
           changed since their checkout.
    
    
    

    FILES

           rcsclean accesses files much as ci(1) does.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           RCSINIT
                  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.  Use-
                  ful RCSINIT options include -q, -V, -x, and -z.
    
    
    

    DIAGNOSTICS

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

    BUGS

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