sccs-val(1)				  User Commands 			      sccs-val(1)

NAME
       sccs-val, val - validate an SCCS file

SYNOPSIS
       val [-s] [-m name] [-rsid] [-y type] s.filename...

DESCRIPTION
       The  val utility determines if the specified s.files meet the characteristics specified by
       the indicated arguments. val can process up to 50 files on a single command line.

       val has a special argument, `-', which reads the standard input until the end-of-file con-
       dition is detected. Each line read is independently processed as if it were a command line
       argument list.

       val generates diagnostic messages on the standard output for each command  line	and  file
       processed and also returns a single 8-bit code upon exit as described below.

       The 8-bit code returned by val is a disjunction of the possible errors, that is, it can be
       interpreted as a bit string where (moving from left to right) the bits set are interpreted
       as follows:

	 bit 0 = missing file argument
	 bit 1 = unknown or duplicate option
	 bit 2 = corrupted s.file
	 bit 3 = can not open file or file not in s.file format
	 bit 4 = the SCCS delta ID (SID) is invalid or ambiguous
	 bit 5 = the SID does not exist
	 bit 6 = mismatch between Y% and -y argument
	 bit 7 = mismatch between sccs-val.1 and -m argument

       val  can process two or more files on a given command line, and in turn can process multi-
       ple command lines (when reading the standard input). In these cases, an aggregate code  is
       returned  which	is  the  logical OR of the codes generated for each command line and file
       processed.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -s	  Silent.  Suppresses the normal error or warning messages.

       -m name	  Compares name with the %M% ID keyword in the s.file.

       -rsid	  Checks to see if the indicated SID is ambiguous, invalid, or	absent	from  the
		  s.file.

       -y type	  Compares type with the %Y% ID keyword.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       See  environ(5)	for  descriptions  of the following environment variables that affect the
       execution of val: LANG, LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES, and NLSPATH.
