NAME

ident - identify files  

SYNOPSIS

ident [-q] [file...]


 

DESCRIPTION

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 1.1.8.2 1998/06/01 20:20:00 Sally_Gero Exp $";

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

ident f.c f.o

will output

f.c:
   $Id: ident.1,v 1.1.8.2 1998/06/01 20:20:00 Sally_Gero Exp $ f.o:
   $Id: ident.1,v 1.1.8.2 1998/06/01 20:20:00 Sally_Gero Exp $
