sccs-cdc, cdc - change the delta commentary of an SCCS delta


     /usr/ccs/bin/cdc   -rsid   [-mmr-list]   [   -y   [comment]]


     cdc annotates the delta commentary for  the  SCCS  delta  ID
     (SID) specified by the -r option in each named s.file.

     If the v flag is set in the s.file, you can also use cdc  to
     update the Modification Request (MR) list.

     If you checked in the delta, or, if you  own  the  file  and
     directory  and  have  write  permission,  you can use cdc to
     annotate the commentary.

     Rather than replacing the existing commentary,  cdc  inserts
     the new comment you supply, followed by a line of the form:

          *** CHANGED *** yy/mm/dd hh/mm/ss username

     above the existing commentary.

     If a directory is named as the s.filename argument, the  cdc
     command applies to all s.files in that directory. Unreadable
     s.files produce an error; processing continues with the next
     file  (if  any). If `-' is given as the s.filename argument,
     each line of the standard input is taken as the name  of  an
     SCCS history file to be processed, and the -m and -y options
     must be used.


     - rsid
           Specify the SID of the delta to change.

           Specify one or more MR numbers to add or delete.  When
           specifying  more  than one MR on the command line, mr-
           list takes the form of a quoted, space-separated list.
           To  delete an MR number, precede it with a ! character
           (an empty MR list has no effect). A  list  of  deleted
           MRs is placed in the comment section of the delta com-
           mentary.  If -m is not used and the standard input  is
           a terminal, cdc prompts with MRs? for the list (before
           issuing the comments? prompt). -m is only useful  when
           the  v  flag  is set in the s.file. If that flag has a
           value, it is taken to be the  name  of  a  program  to
           validate  the  MR numbers.  If that validation program
           returns a non-zero exit status, cdc terminates and the
           delta commentary remains unchanged.

           Use comment as the annotation in the delta commentary.
           The  previous  comments  are  retained; the comment is
           added along with a notation that  the  commentary  was
           changed.  A   null comment leaves the commentary unaf-
           fected. If -y is not specified and the standard  input
           is  a  terminal,  cdc  prompts with comments?  for the
           text of the notation to be added.  An  unescaped  NEW-
           LINE character terminates the annotation text.


     Example 1: Changing the annotated commentary

     The following command:

     example% cdc -r1.6 -y"corrected commentary" s.program.c

     produces the following annotated commentary for delta 1.6 in

     D 1.6 88/07/05 23:21:07 username 9 0 00001/00000/00000
     corrected commentary
     *** CHANGED *** 88/07/07 14:09:41 username
