      sccshelp - ask for help on SCCS commands

      sccshelp [arg] ...

      The sccshelp command finds information to explain a message from an
      SCCS command or to explain the use of a SCCS command.  Zero or more
      arguments can be supplied.  If no arguments are given, sccshelp
      prompts for one:

	   What is the message number or SCCS command name?

      The arguments can be either message numbers (which normally appear in
      parentheses following messages) or command names, of one of the
      following types:

	   type 1    Begins with nonnumerics, ends in numerics.	 The
		     nonnumeric prefix is usually an abbreviation for the
		     program or set of routines which produced the message
		     (e.g., ge6, for message 6 from the get command).

	   type 2    Does not contain numerics (as a command, such as get).

	   type 3    Is all numeric (e.g., 212).

      The response of the program is the explanatory information related to
      the argument, if there is any.

      You can use sccshelp to support other commands by means of the helploc
      file.  To do this, create help files in the appropriate format and add
      the location of the helpfiles to /usr/share/lib/sccshelp/helploc.

    Environment Variables
      LC_CTYPE determines the interpretation of text as single- and/or
      multibyte characters.

      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_CTYPE is not specified or is null, it defaults to the value of
      LANG.  If LANG is not specified or is null, it defaults to "C" (see
      lang(5)).	 If any internationalization variable contains an invalid
      setting, all internationalization variables default to "C".  See

    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multibyte character code sets are supported.

      There is not a place to look for help on the subject of arg

      There is not any help available on the subject of arg

      When all else fails, try sscshelp stuck.

      If you enter the SCCS get command without parameters, you would get
      the message:

	   ERROR: missing file arg (cm3)

      If you request help for the command:

	   sccshelp get

      it displays:

		get [-r<&lt&lt&lt;SID>&gt&gt&gt;] [-c<&lt&lt&lt;cutoff>&gt&gt&gt;] [-i<&lt&lt&lt;list>&gt&gt&gt;] [-x<&lt&lt&lt;list>&gt&gt&gt;] [-a<&lt&lt&lt;seq no.>&gt&gt&gt;]
		    [-k] [-e] [-l<&lt&lt&lt;p>&gt&gt&gt;] [-p] [-m] [-n] [-s] [-b] [-g] [-t]
		    [-w<&lt&lt&lt;string>&gt&gt&gt;] file ...

      If you request help for the error number:

	   sccshelp cm3

      it displays:

	   "missing file arg"
	   You left off the name of the file to be processed.

      Only SCCS commands currently use sccshelp.
