NAME
     what - show what versions of object modules were used to construct a file

SYNOPSIS
     what name ...

DESCRIPTION
     What reads each file name and searches for sequences of the form ``@(#)''
     as inserted by the source code control system.  It prints the remainder
     of the string following this marker, up to a null character, newline,
     double quote, or ``> character.''

BUGS
     As BSD is not licensed to distribute SCCS this is a rewrite of the what
     command which is part of SCCS, and may not behave exactly the same as
     that command does.

HISTORY
     The what command appeared in 4.0BSD.

4th Berkeley Distribution        June 6, 1993                                1
