 NAME
      ident - identify files in RCS

 SYNOPSIS
      ident file ...

 DESCRIPTION
      ident searches the named files for all occurrences of the pattern
      $keyword:...$, where keyword is one of the following:

	   Author	       Log
	   Date		       Revision
	   Header	       Source
	   Locker	       State

      These patterns are normally inserted automatically by the RCS co
      command, but can also be inserted manually (see co(1)).

      ident works on text files as well as object files.  For example, if
      the C program in file f.c contains:

	   char rcsid[] = "$Header:  Header information $";

      and f.c is compiled into f.o, the command:

	   ident f.c f.o

      prints:

	   f.c:
		$Header: Header information $

	   f.o:
		$Header: Header information $

      ident was developed by Walter F. Tichy.
