NAME
       what - extract SCCS version information from a file

SYNOPSIS
       what [-s] filename...

DESCRIPTION
       The  what utility searches each filename	for occurrences	of the pattern
       @(#) that the SCCS get command (see sccs-get(1))	 substitutes  for  the
       %Z%  ID	keyword,  and prints what follows up to	a ", >,	NEWLINE, \, or
       NULL character.

OPTIONS
       The following option is supported:

       -s	Stops 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
