SCCS-VAL(1)                 General Commands Manual                SCCS-VAL(1)



NAME
       sccs-val, val - validate an SCCS file

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sccs/val -

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

DESCRIPTION
       val  determines if the specified s.files files meet the characteristics
       specified by the indicated arguments.  val can process 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 com-
       mand line and file processed and also returns a single 8-bit code  upon
       exit as described below.

       The 8-bit code returned by val is a disjunction of the possible errors,
       that is, it can be interpreted as a bit string where (moving from  left
       to right) the bits set are interpreted 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 %Y% and -y argument
              bit 7 = mismatch between %M% -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.

OPTIONS
       -s      Silent.  Suppress the normal error or warning messages.

       -mname  Compare name with the %M% ID keyword in the s.file.

       -rsid   Check to see if the indicated SID  is  ambiguous,  invalid,  or
               absent from the s.file.

       -y type Compare type with the %Y% ID keyword.
