what -- search files for SCCS identifiers SYNOPSIS
what [-s] file ... DESCRIPTION
The what utility reads each file operand 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, backslash, or ``>'' character. If the -s option is specified, only the first occurrence of an identification string in each file is printed. EXIT STATUS
The what utility exits 0 if any matches were found, and 1 otherwise. STANDARDS
The what utility conforms to X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4, Version 2 (``XPG4.2''). HISTORY
The what command appeared in 4.0BSD. 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. BSD
