Some epics technical documents reported that the epics base 3.14.x has the ability of add/delete record in processes database during operation, but I found little information about how to do this in the AppDevGuide.pdf and some other documents. Is there anybody who has the experience of this could show some simple example of how to do this. thanks!

Which document(s) imply this? It is *not* possible to add or delete records to an after the call to iocInit() from the startup script. In the future it might become possible to add new record instances, but I don't think the current code-base will ever permit deleting records (that would need a complete rewrite of IOC Core which could not be made compatible with existing record types and device support).
