NAME
       ident - identify files

SYNOPSIS
       ident file ...

DESCRIPTION
       Ident  searches	the  named  files for all occurrences of the pattern $keyword:...$, where
       keyword is one of

	       Author
	       Date
	       Header
	       Locker
	       Log
	       Revision
	       Source
	       State

       These patterns are normally inserted automatically by the RCS command co (1), but can also
       be inserted manually.

       Ident  works on text files as well as object files.  For example, if the C program in file
       f.c contains

	       char rcsid[] = "$Header:  Header information $";

       and f.c is compiled into f.o, then the command

	       ident  f.c  f.o

       will print

	       f.c:
		       $Header:  Header information $
	       f.o:
		       $Header:  Header information $
