NAME
       what - extract SCCS version information from a file

SYNOPSIS
       what [-s] filename...

DESCRIPTION
       what  searches  each  filename for occurrences of the pattern @(#) that
       the SCCS	get command (see sccs-get(1)) substitutes for the @(#) ID key-
       word, and prints	what follows up	to a ",	>, NEWLINE, \, or null charac-
       ter.

OPTIONS
       The following option is supported:

       - s   Stop after	the first occurrence of	the pattern.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Extracting SCCS version information

       If a C program in file program.c	contains

       char sccsid[] = "@(#)identification information";

       and program.c is	compiled to yield program.o and	a.out, the command:

       example%	what program.c program.o a.out

	produces:

	program.c:
	     identification information

       program.o:
	     identification information

       a.out:
	     identification information
