making a delta; that is, if a
p.file exists for the named SCCS file
the delta specified must

level of the delta to be removed.
If a directory is named,

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

non-SCCS files and unreadable files are silently ignored.
The rules governing the removal of a delta are as

appropriate file permissions,
you can remove it;
if you own the file and directory in which a new delta
file resides, you can remove the delta.
