NAME

what - extract SCCS version information from a file

SYNOPSIS

what [ -s ] filename ...

DESCRIPTION

what searches each filename for occurrences of the pattern @(#) that the SCCS get command (see sccs-get(1)) substitutes for the @(#) ID keyword, and prints what follows up to a ", >, NEWLINE, \, or null character.

OPTIONS

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Extracting SCCS version information If a C program in file program.c contains char sccsid[] = "@(#)identification information"; and program.c is compiled to yield program.o and a.out, the command: example% what program.c program.o a.out produces: program.c: identification information program.o: identification information a.out: identification information
