what -- show what versions of object modules were used to construct a
what [-s] [file ...]
The what utility searches each specified file for sequences of the form
``@(#)'' as inserted by the source code control system. It prints the
remainder of the string following this marker, up to a NUL character,
newline, double quote, ``>'' character, or backslash.
The following option is available:
-s Stop searching each file after the first match.
Exit status is 0 if any matches were found, otherwise 1.
The what utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
The what command appeared in 4.0BSD.
This is a rewrite of the SCCS command of the same name, and behavior may
not be identical.
