NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ident - identify files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       ident [-q] [file...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       ident  searches  for  all occurrences of the pattern $keyword:...$
 in the named files or, if no file name  appears,
       the standard input.

       These  patterns are normally inserted automatically by the
       RCS command co(1), but can also be inserted manually.  The
       option  -q  suppresses  the  warning given if there are no
       patterns in a file.

       ident works on text files as  well  as  object  files  and
       dumps. For example, if the C program in f.c contains

       char   rcsid[]   =  "$Id:  ident.1,v  1999/08/13
       19:58:10 Colin_Walters Exp $";

       and f.c is compiled into f.o, then the command

       # ident  f.c  f.o

       will output

         $Id: ident.1,v 1999/08/13  19:58:10  Colin_Walters
 Exp $ f.o:
         $Id:  ident.1,v 1999/08/13 19:58:10 Colin_Walters
 Exp $
