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.
