sccs-diffs(1)		    Schily's USER COMMANDS		 sccs-diffs(1)

NAME
       sccs-diffs -  compare the working copy of a file	with the SCCS history

SYNOPSIS
       sccs diffs [options] [file1 .. filen]
       sccs ldiffs [options] [file1 .. filen]

DESCRIPTION
       The diffs subcommand compares (in diff(1) format) the working copy of a
       file that is checked out	for editing, with a version from the SCCS his-
       tory.   sccs  diffs uses	the most recent	checked-in version by default.
       The diffs subcommand accepts the	same options as	diff.

       Any -r, -c, -i, -x, and -t options are passed to	subcommand get.	 A  -C
       option is passed	to diff	as -c.	An -I option is	passed to diff as -i.

       The  diffs  subcommand calls the	UNIX diff(1) command that is delivered
       with the	SCCS packet. If	you like to call  the  local  diff(1)  command
       that is in your PATH, use the ldiffs subcommand.

OPTIONS
       All diff(1) options are supported and the following SCCS	options:

       -c date-time | -cdate-time
	      Use the most recent version checked in before the	indicated date
	      and  time	  for	comparison.    date-time   takes   the	 form:
	      yy[mm[dd[hh[mm[ss]]]]].	Omitted	units default to their maximum
	      possible values; that is -c7502 is equivalent to -c750228235959.

       -r[sid]
	      Use the version corresponding to the indicated SID (delta).

	      See sccs-get(1) formore information on the SID.

EXAMPLES
       To compare the file xec.c in the	current	directory with te state	in the
       SCCS history call:

	      sccs diffs xec.c

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       See  environ(5) for descriptions	of the following environment variables
       that affect the execution of  sccs-diffs(1):  LANG,  LC_ALL,  LC_CTYPE,
       LC_MESSAGES, and	NLSPATH.

       SCCS_NO_HELP
	      If  set, sccs diffs will not automatically call help(1) with the
	      SCCS error code in order to print	a more helpful error  message.
	      Scripts that depend on the exact error messages of SCCS commands
	      should  set  the	environment  variable  SCCS_NO_HELP  and   set
	      LC_ALL=C.
