NAME

       aegis copy file undo - reverse action of aecp

SYNOPSIS

       aegis -CoPy_file_Undo [ option...  ] filename...
       aegis -CoPy_file_Undo -List [ option...  ]
       aegis -CoPy_file_Undo -Help

DESCRIPTION

       The aegis -CoPy_file_Undo command is used to delete files previously
       copied into a change.  The named files will be removed from the list of
       files in the change.

       The file is deleted from the development directory unless the -Keep
       option is specified.  The -Keep option should be used with great care,
       as you can confuse tools such as make(1) by leaving these files in
       place.

       You may name a directory to delete from the change all files in that
       directory tree previously copied into the change, other files in the
       tree will be ignored.  It is an error if there are no relevant files.

   Branch vs Change
       The aecpu(1) command may only be applied to a change.  If you wish to
       perform the same operation on a branch, use the aemt(1) command,
       through the agency of a change.

   File Name Interpretation
       The aegis program will attempt to determine the project file names from
       the file names given on the command line.  All file names are stored
       within aegis projects as relative to the root of the baseline directory
       tree.  The development directory and the integration directory are
       shadows of this baseline directory, and so these relative names apply
       here, too.  Files named on the command line are first converted to
       absolute paths if necessary.  They are then compared with the baseline
       path, the development directory path, and the integration directory
       path, to determine a baseline-relative name.  It is an error if the
       file named is outside one of these directory trees.

       The -BAse_RElative option may be used to cause relative filenames to be
       interpreted as relative to the baseline path; absolute filenames will
       still be compared with the various paths in order to determine a
       baseline-relative name.

       The relative_filename_preference in the user configuration file may be
       used to modify this default behavior.  See aeuconf(5) for more
       information.

   Process Side Effects
       This command will cancel any build or test registrations, because
       deleting a file logically invalidates them.  If the project
       configuration file was deleted, any diff registration will also be
       canceled.

       The difference file (,D) will also be removed, however any DMT derived
       files (e.g a .o file from a .c file) will not be removed.  This is
       because aegis is decoupled from the DMT, and cannot know what these
       derived file may be called.  You may need to delete derived files
       manually.

   Notification
       The copy_file_undo_command in the project config file is run, if set.
       The project_file_command is also run, if set, and if there has been an
       integration recently.  See aepconf(5) for more information.

OPTIONS

       The following options are understood:

       -BAse_RElative
               This option may be used to cause relative filenames to be
               considered relative to the base of the source tree.  See
               aeuconf(5) for the corresponding user preference.

       -CUrrent_RElative
               This option may be used to cause relative filenames to be
               considered relative to the current directory.  This is usually
               the default.  See aeuconf(5) for the corresponding user
               preference.

       -Change number
               This option may be used to specify a particular change within a
               project.  See aegis(1) for a complete description of this
               option.

       -Help
               This option may be used to obtain more information about how to
               use the aegis program.

       -Interactive
               Specify that aegis should ask the user for confirmation before
               deleting each file.  Answer the question yes to delete the
               file, or no to keep the file.  You can also answer all to
               delete the file and all that follow, or none to keep the file
               and all that follow.

               Defaults to the user’s delete_file_preference if not specified,
               see aeuconf(5) for more information.

               If aegis is running in the background, the question will not be
               asked, and the files will be deleted.

       -Keep
               This option may be used to retain files and/or directories
               usually deleted or replaced by the command.  Defaults to the
               user’s delete_file_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5)
               for more information.

       -No_Keep
               This option may be used to ensure that the files and/or
               directories are deleted or replaced by the command.  Defaults
               to the user’s delete_file_preference if not specified, see
               aeuconf(5) for more information.

       -List
               This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects
               for this command.  The list may be more general than expected.

       -Project name
               This option may be used to select the project of interest.
               When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT
               environment variable is consulted.  If that does not exist, the
               user’s $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project
               field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that does not
               exist, when the user is only working on changes within a single
               project, the project name defaults to that project.  Otherwise,
               it is an error.

       -Read_Only
               This option may be used to specify that only insulation files
               are to be uncopied.  If you specify -UNChanged as well, only
               unchanged insulation files will be uncopied.

       -TERse
               This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare
               minimum of information.  It is usually useful for shell
               scripts.

       -Verify_Symbolic_Links
               This option may be used to request that the symbolic links, or
               hard links, or file copies, in the work area be updated to
               reflect the current state of the baseline.  This is controlled
               by the development_directory_style field of the project
               configuration file.  Only files which are not involved in the
               change are updated.  See also the “symbolic_links_preference”
               field of aeuconf(5).  This option is the default, if meaningful
               for your configuration.  The name is an historical accident,
               hard links and file copies are included.

       -Assume_Symbolic_Links
               This option may be used to request that no update of baseline
               mirror files take place.  This options is useful when you
               definitely know the files’ up-to-date-ness isn’t important
               right now; incorrect use of this option may have unanticipated
               build side-effects.  See also the “symbolic_links_preference”
               field of aeuconf(5).  This option is the default, if not
               meaningful for your configuration.  The name is an historical
               accident, hard links and file copies are included.

       -UNChanged
               Examine the named files to see if they are unchanged.  Only
               remove the unchanged files from the change, and leave the files
               which have changed.  If no files are named on the command line
               all change files are checked.

       -Verbose
               This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output.
               By default aegis only produces output on errors.  When used
               with the -List option this option causes column headings to be
               added.

       -Wait   This option may be used to require Aegis commands to wait for
               access locks, if they cannot be obtained immediately.  Defaults
               to the user’s lock_wait_preference if not specified, see
               aeuconf(5) for more information.

       -No_Wait
               This option may be used to require Aegis commands to emit a
               fatal error if access locks cannot be obtained immediately.
               Defaults to the user’s lock_wait_preference if not specified,
               see aeuconf(5) for more information.

       See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

       All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the
       upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are
       optional.  You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

       All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
       lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

       For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all
       interpreted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not
       be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not
       supplied.

       Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on
       the command line, after the function selectors.

       The GNU long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
       aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’.  The
       "--option=value" convention is also understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS

       The recommended alias for this command is
       csh%    alias aecpu ’aegis -cpu \!* -v’
       sh$     aecpu(){aegis -cpu "$@" -v}

ERRORS

       It is an error if the change is not in the being developed state.
       It is an error if the change is not assigned to the current user.

EXIT STATUS

       The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The aegis
       command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this
       command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file’s project_
       specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands
       executed by Aegis.
