IDENT(1)							      IDENT(1)

NAME
       ident - identify	files

SYNOPSIS
       ident [ -q ] [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       ident  searches for all occurrences of the pattern $keyword:...$	in the
       named files or, if no file name appears,	the standard input.

       These patterns are normally inserted automatically by the  RCS  command
       co(1), but can also be inserted manually.  The option -q	suppresses the
       warning given if	there are no patterns in a file.

       ident works on text files as well as object files and dumps.  For exam-
       ple, if the C program in	f.c contains

	      char rcsid[] = "$Id: f.c,v 1993/06/18 04:22:12 jkh Exp  $";

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

	      ident  f.c  f.o

       will output

	      f.c:
		  $Id: f.c,v 1993/06/18	04:22:12 jkh Exp  $
	      f.o:
		  $Id: f.c,v 1993/06/18	04:22:12 jkh Exp  $
