NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for what (netbsd section 1)

WHAT(1) 			   BSD General Commands Manual				  WHAT(1)

NAME
     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.
