When using the "backup archive all delete input" command does this delete archive logs in all locations?

Are there variations to the delete?

BACKUP ARCHIVELOG ALL DELETE INPUT;

command can delete archived redo logs, datafile copies, and backup sets
after backing them up. RMAN backs up one and only one copy of each log sequence number, and then deletes the file that it backs up.

If you specify the DELETE ALL INPUT option, then RMAN deletes whichever
files match the criteria that you specify, even if there are several
files of the same log sequence number. For example, assume that you
archive to 3 different directories. Then, you issue

BACKUP ARCHIVELOG ALL FROM SEQUENCE 1200 DELETE ALL INPUT;

In this case, RMAN backs up only one copy of each log sequence between 1200 and the most recent sequence, but deletes all logs with these sequence numbers contained in the three archive destinations

Thanks for the info. This will help.
Does the DELETE INPUT command delete only from the log_archive_dest_1 specified in the init.ora?
