       sconsign	- print	SCons signature	file information

       sconsign	[options...] [file...]

       The sconsign command displays the contents of one or more signature
       ("sconsign") files specified by the user.

       By default, sconsign dumps the entire contents of the specified
       file(s).	Without	the verbose option, each entry is printed in the
       following format:

	   file: signature timestamp length
		   implicit_dependency_1: signature timestamp length
		   implicit_dependency_2: signature timestamp length
		   action_signature [action string]

       None is printed in place	of any missing timestamp, build	signature
       ("bsig"), or content signature ("csig") values for any entry or any of
       its dependencies. If the	entry has no implicit dependencies, or no
       build action, the lines are simply omitted. The verbose option expands
       the display into	a more human readable format.

       By default, sconsign assumes that any file arguments that end with a
       .dbm suffix contains signature entries for more than one	directory
       (that is, was specified by the SConsignFile function). Any file
       argument	that ends in .dblite is	assumed	to be a	traditional .sconsign
       file containing the signature entries for a single directory. If
       neither of those	is true, sconsign attempts to guess the	format.	If
       that does not work, an explicit format may be specified using the -f or
       --format= options.

       If there	are no file arguments, the name	.sconsign.dblite is assumed.

       Various options control what information	is printed and the format:

       -a, --act, --action
	   Prints the build action information for all entries or the
	   specified entries.

       -c, --csig
	   Prints the content signature	(csig) information for all entries or
	   the specified entries.

       -d DIRECTORY, --dir=DIRECTORY
	   When	the signatures are being read from a .dbm file,	or the -f dbm
	   or --format=dbm options are used, prints information	about only the
	   signatures for entries in the specified DIRECTORY.

       -e ENTRY, --entry=ENTRY
	   Prints information about only the specified ENTRY. Multiple -e
	   options may be used,	in which case information about	each ENTRY is
	   printed in the order	in which the options are specified on the
	   command line.

       -f FORMAT, --format=FORMAT
	   The file(s) to be printed are in the	specified FORMAT. Legal	values
	   are dbm (the	DBM format used	when the SConsignFile function is
	   used) or sconsign (the default format used for an individual
	   .sconsign file in each directory).

       -h, --help
	   Prints a help message and exits.

       -i, --implicit
	   Prints the list of cached implicit dependencies for all entries or
	   for the specified entries.

	   Prints a pretty-printed representation of the raw Python dictionary
	   that	holds build information	about individual entries (both the
	   entry itself	and its	implicit dependencies).	An entry's build
	   action is still printed in its usual	format.

       -r, --readable
	   Prints timestamps in	a human-readable string, enclosed in single

       -t, --timestamp
	   Prints the timestamp	information for	all entries or the specified

       -v, --verbose
	   Prints labels identifying each field	being printed.

	   Specifies the directory that	contains the SCons Python module
	   directory (e.g.  /home/aroach/scons-src-0.01/src/engine). on	the
	   command line.
