WHAT(1) BSD General Commands Manual WHAT(1)NAME
what -- search files for SCCS identifiers
what [-s] file ...
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.
The what utility exits 0 if any matches were found, and 1 otherwise.
The what utility conforms to X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4, Version 2 (``XPG4.2'').
The what command appeared in 4.0BSD.
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.

What is your favorite Linux distro?
and possibly why?
Personally, I have Fedora 3 on my computer. I have used Ubuntu and Slackware, too. But I think I liked Ubuntu more, maybe because of its speed and easy installation of packages. (192 Replies)
I was looking through the topics and I wasn't sure if this was the best place to post this question:
