How to automatically remove version 0 which remains after an uncheckout

Technote (FAQ)


How do I automatically remove the 0 version which remains after an uncheckout command is executed while creating a new IBM® Rational® ClearCase® branch for an element?


An uncheckout operation was performed on an element leaving the new branch instance and only a 0 version on the branch.


IBM Rational does not provide any customized or user requested scripts; however, there is a trigger and script combination available on the developerWorks website in IBM Rational ClearCase: The ten best triggers under the section Remove Empty Branch.
