NAME
       what - extract SCCS version information from a file

SYNOPSIS
       what [ -s ] filename ...

DESCRIPTION
       what  searches  each  filename for occurrences of the pattern @(#) that
       the SCCS get command (see sccs-get(1)) substitutes for the %Z% ID  key-
       word, and prints what follows up to a ", >>, NEWLINE, \, or null charac-
       ter.  For instance, if the C program in file program.c contains

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

       and program.c is compiled to yield program.o and a.out, the command:
              what program.c program.o a.out

       produces:

              program.c:
                     identification information

              program.o:
                     identification information

              a.out: identification information

OPTIONS
       -s     Stop after the first occurrence of the pattern.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Use the SCCS help command for explanations (see sccs-help(1)).

BUGS
       There is a remote possibility that a spurious occurrence of the  `@(#)'
       pattern could be found by what.
