recdel [OPTIONS]... [-t TYPE] [-n NUM | -e RECORD_EXPR | -q STR | -m NUM] [FILE]

DESCRIPTION

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.
