 NAME
      what - get SCCS identification information

 SYNOPSIS
      what [-s] file ...

 DESCRIPTION
      The what command searches the given files for all occurrences of the
      pattern that get(1) substitutes for %Z% (currently @(#) at this
      printing) and prints out what follows until the first ", >&gt&gt>, new-line,
      \, or null character.  For example, if the C program in file f.c
      contains

	   char ident[] = "@(#)identification information";

      and f.c is compiled to yield f.o and a.out, the command

	   what f.c f.o a.out

      prints

	   f.c:		  identification information

	   f.o:		  identification information

	   a.out:	  identification information

      what is intended to be used in conjunction with the SCCS get command
      (see get(1)) which automatically inserts identifying information, but
      it can also be used where the information is inserted manually.

    Options
      what recognizes the following option:

	   -s	     Quit after finding the first occurrence of pattern in
		     each file.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LC_CTYPE determines the interpretation of the pattern substituted for
      %Z% as single- and/or multi-byte characters.

      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_CTYPE or LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is
      set to the empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for
      each unspecified or empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is
      set to the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used
      instead of LANG.	If any internationalization variable contains an
      invalid setting, what behaves as if all internationalization variables
      are set to "C".  See environ(5).
