       cdc - change the delta commentary of an SCCS delta

       SID [mrlist]] [comment]] files

       The  command  changes  the for the SID specified by the option, of each
       named SCCS file.

       is defined to be the Modification Request (MR) and comment  information
       normally specified via the delta(1) command and options).

       If  a directory is named, behaves as if each file in the directory were
       specified as a named file, except that non-SCCS files  (last  component
       of  the path name does not begin with and unreadable files are silently
       ignored.	 If a name of is given, the standard input is read  (see  each
       line  of	 the standard input is taken to be the name of an SCCS file to
       be processed.

       Arguments to which can appear in any order, consist of option arguments
       and file names.

       All of the described option arguments apply independently to each named

	      Used to specify the
			     SCCS IDentification (SID) string of a  delta  for
			     which the delta commentary is to be changed.

	      If the	     SCCS  file	 has  the option set (see admin(1)), a
			     list of MR numbers to be added and/or deleted  in
			     the  delta commentary of the SID specified by the
			     option may be supplied.  A null MR	 list  has  no

			     MR	 entries  are  added to the list of MRs in the
			     same manner as that of delta(1).	To  delete  an
			     MR, precede the MR number with the character (see
			     If the MR to be deleted is currently in the  list
			     of	 MRs,  it  is removed and changed into a "com‐
			     ment" line.  A list of all deleted MRs is	placed
			     in	 the  comment  section of the delta commentary
			     and preceded by a comment line stating that  they
			     were deleted.

			     If is not used and the standard input is a termi‐
			     nal, the prompt is issued on the standard	output
			     before  the  standard input is read; if the stan‐
			     dard input	 is  not  a  terminal,	no  prompt  is
			     issued.   The  prompt  always precedes the prompt
			     (see option).

			     MRs in a list are separated by blanks and/or  tab
			     characters.  An unescaped new-line character ter‐
			     minates the MRs list.

			     Note  that	 if  the  option  has  a  value	  (see
			     admin(1)), it is treated as the name of a program
			     (or shell procedure) that validates the  correct‐
			     ness  of the MR numbers.  If a non-zero exit sta‐
			     tus is returned from  the	MR  number  validation
			     program,  terminates  and	the  delta  commentary
			     remains unchanged.

	      Arbitrary text used to replace the
			     comment or	 comments  already  existing  for  the
			     delta specified by the option.  Previous comments
			     are kept and preceded by a comment	 line  stating
			     that  they	 were  changed.	 A null comment has no

			     If is not specified and the standard input	 is  a
			     terminal,	the  prompt  is issued on the standard
			     output before standard input is read; if standard
			     input is not a terminal, no prompt is issued.  An
			     unescaped new-line character terminates the  com‐
			     ment text.

       The  exact permissions necessary to modify the SCCS file are documented
       in get(1).  Simply stated, they are either:

	      ·	 If you made the delta, you can change its  delta  commentary,

	      ·	 If  you  own the file and directory, you can modify the delta
