NAME
       src  - find source code for executable

SYNOPSIS
       src [ -n	] [ -s symbol ]	file ...

DESCRIPTION
       Src  examines  the  named  files	to find	the corresponding source code,
       which is	then sent to the editor	using B	(see If	file is	an script, the
       source is the file itself.  If file is an executable, the source	is de-
       fined to	be the single file containing the definition of	main  and  src
       will point the editor at	the line that begins the definition.  Src uses
       to extract the symbol table information that identifies the source.

       Src looks for each file in the current directory, in /bin, and  in  the
       subdirectories of /bin, in that order.

       The  -n	flag  causes src to print the file name	but not	send it	to the
       editor.	The -s flag identifies a symbol	other than main	to locate.

EXAMPLES
       Find the	source to the main routine in /bin/ed:

	      src ed

       Find the	source for strcmp:

	      src -s strcmp rc

SOURCE
       /bin/src
