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

NAME
       sccs-check,  sccs-info,	sccs-tell - print information about file being
       edited

SYNOPSIS
       sccs check [options] [directory]
       sccs info [options] [directory]
       sccs tell [options] [directory]

DESCRIPTION
       sccs check checks for files currently being edited. Like	info and tell,
       but  returns  an	 exit  code, rather than producing a listing of	files.
       check returns a non-zero	exit status if anything	is being edited.   The
       intent  is  to have this	included in an ``install'' entry in a makefile
       to insure that everything is included into the SCCS file	before a  ver-
       sion is installed.

       sccs  info displays a list of files being edited, including the version
       number checked out, the version to be checked in, the name of the  user
       who holds the lock, and the date	and time the file was checked out.

       If the -b flag is given,	branches (i.e.,	SID's with two or fewer	compo-
       nents) are ignored.  If the -u flag is given (with  an  optional	 argu-
       ment)  then  only  files	 being	edited	by you (or the named user) are
       listed.

       sccs tell displays the list of files that are  currently	 checked  out,
       one file	per line.

       If  no  directory  argument  is given, the current working directory is
       used.

OPTIONS
   /usr/bin/sccs
       check [-b] [-u[username]	]

   /usr/xpg4/bin/sccs
       check [-b] [-u [username] | -U ]

       -b

	      Ignore branches.

       -u[username] | -u [username] | -U

	      Check only files being edited by you.  When username  is	speci-
	      fied,   check   only  files  being  edited  by  that  user.  For
	      /usr/xpg4/bin/sccs, the -U option	 is  equivalent	 to  -u	 <cur-
	      rent_user>.

EXAMPLES
       To create a list	of files currently being edited, call:

	      sccs tell

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

       SCCS_NO_HELP
	      If  set,	sccs check, sccs info and sccs tell will not automati-
	      cally call help(1) with the SCCS error code in order to print  a
	      more helpful error message. Scripts that depend on the exact er-
	      ror messages of SCCS commands should set the  environment	 vari-
	      able SCCS_NO_HELP	and set	LC_ALL=C.
