sccs-val, val - validate an SCCS file


/usr/ccs/bin/val - /usr/ccs/bin/val [ -s ] [ -m name ] [ -rsid ] [ -y type ] s.filename ...


val determines if the specified s.files meet the charac- teristics specified by the indicated arguments. val can pro- cess up to 50 files on a single command line. val has a special argument, `-', which reads the standard input until the end-of-file condition is detected. Each line read is independently processed as if it were a command line argument list. val generates diagnostic messages on the standard output for each command line and file processed and also returns a sin- gle 8-bit code upon exit as described below. The 8-bit code returned by val is a disjunction of the pos- sible errors, that is, it can be interpreted as a bit string where (moving from left to right) the bits set are inter- preted as follows: bit 0 = missing file argument bit 1 = unknown or duplicate option bit 2 = corrupted s.file bit 3 = can not open file or file not in s.file format bit 4 = the SCCS delta ID (SID) is invalid or ambiguous bit 5 = the SID does not exist bit 6 = mismatch between and -y argument bit 7 = mismatch between sccs-val.1 -m argument val can process two or more files on a given command line, and in turn can process multiple command lines (when reading the standard input). In these cases, an aggregate code is returned which is the logical OR of the codes generated for each command line and file processed.
