wremove - remove files and empty directories.

wremove removes the indicated names
from both the snapshot and workspace, and records the delete in the item's
history. The delete can then be copied to other snapshots, just as with
any other change to a file or directory.
A name can be removed without recording
the delete in the item's history. See the discussion under the -U option for
when you might want to use this option.
Individual revisions can also be
removed. See the -O option description below.
Note: a file is not fully deleted
from the archive until all snapshot references to it are removed. Prior
to the last remove, and for some time after, a file can be recovered. See
also the -U option to wset(1)
Mapping is consistent across
all workspace commands. See wco(1)
options can be set on most workspace commands. See wco(1)
The workspace mapping is automatically looked up in the user's workspace
mapping table for the given files. Override this by specifying an explicit

with a temporary workspace mapping with these three options:
the SnapshotCM server on Host for a workspace mapping.
SnapshotPath for a workspace mapping.
- The local destination
directory for a workspace mapping. This can be a relative or absolute path.
If this option is not provided with the other two, the local destination
directory defaults to the current directory where the command is executed.
For more information on workspace mappings, see wmap(1)
status is 0 if all specified names were successfully removed, 1 if any
failures, and >1 if there was a bad option or a network error.
remove names from the snapshot. Normally, workspace names are also removed.
(Also see -L option.)
- Operate only on directories, skip any files. Combine
with -R to remove all empty directories.
- Operate only on files, don't try
to remove directories.
- Force the operation. This allows you to delete locally
modified files, and unlink files and delete revisions without being prompted
- List only files whose name (or path) matches
patternList. PatternList consists of one or more patterns separated by a
'|' (pipe/or) symbol. Each pattern can contain shell wild cards as follows:
* - match 0 or more characters
? - match any one character
[set] - match any character in set
[!set] - match any character not in set
A pattern not ending in a slash ('/') matches only files. A pattern ending
in a slash matches only directories. A pattern containing a slash other
than at the end is matched against the full workspace path. Otherwise pattern
is matched against the last component of the path. If patternList begins
with an '!' (exclamation/bang) character, the normal selection is negated.
- Only remove names from the local workspace.
- Print workspace mapping
before normal output.
- Show the operations that would happen, but do not
- Map /Path in the selected snapshot to the specified
(-D) local directory, creating a temporary, partial workspace mapping for
the command. Normally, the root directory of a snapshot is what is mapped.
- -O [R1]-[R2]|Date
- Remove inactive revisions in the specified range. A revision
is considered inactive if it is not referenced by a snapshot, not a merge
or branch point, and not the newest revision.
One may specify a revision
range or a cutoff date. For a revision range, the inclusive range of revisions
is removed. If R1 is omitted, it defaults to the first revision. If R2 is
omitted, it defaults to the last revision. The dash character is required
for a range, else the arg is parsed as a date string, and revisions older
than the date are removed. R1 and R2 can be revision numbers, or full snapshot
paths, in which case the revision referenced by that snapshot is used.
one or more active revisions are selected for removal, they will be silently
skipped: only the inactive revisions will be removed. This allows removing
all inactive revisions older than a given date without having to worry
about which are active.
Once a revision is removed, it cannot be recovered.
- Quiet, do not print normal output.
- Operate recursively on all files
and directories in the hierarchy.
- Set the modification date for the
new revision. Date silently will be forced to be greater than any existing
revision of file. Useful primarily for importing history from other CM
systems. See wco(1)
for supported date formats.
- Unlink name. Unlink removes
name so that it is as if name never existed in snapshot. Unlinked names
cannot be recovered, and the unlink is not added to the item's history. Use
unlink to undo an inadvertent copy of a name into a snapshot. To cleanly
split a snapshot, first make a snapshot copy, then unlink the extra files
in each copy. Use the normal remove, not unlink, when you want the removal
change to be promoted or copied to other snapshots and workspaces.
internal version and exit.
- Display 'full archive path' names.
