recdel - remove records from a recfile
recdel [OPTIONS]... [-t TYPE] [-n NUM | -e RECORD_EXPR | -q STR | -m NUM] [FILE]
Remove (or comment out) records from a rec file. -c, --comment comment out the matching records instead of deleting them. --force delete even in potentially dangerous situations, and if the deletion is violating record restrictions. --no-external don't use external descriptors. --verbose give a detailed report if the integrity check fails. --help print a help message and exit. --version show version and exit. Record selection options: -i, --case-insensitive make strings case-insensitive in selection expressions. -t, --type=TYPE operate on records of the specified type only. -e, --expression=RECORD_EXPR selection expression. -q, --quick=STR select records with fields containing a string. -n, --number=NUM,... select specific records by position, with ranges. -m, --random=NUM select a given number of random records. If no FILE is specified then the command acts like a filter, getting the data from standard input and writing the result to standard output.
