NAME

sccshelp - Provides information about a Source Code Control System (SCCS) message or command  

SYNOPSIS

sccshelp [error_code] [sccs_command]


 

DESCRIPTION

The sccshelp command displays information about the use of a specified SCCS command or about messages generated while using the commands. Each message has an associated error code, which can be supplied as an argument to the sccshelp command.

You can supply zero or more arguments. If you do not supply an argument, sccshelp prompts for one. You can include any of the SCCS commands as arguments to sccshelp.

The error_code argument specifies the code, consisting of numbers and letters, that appears at the end of a message. For example, in the following message, the error code is cm7:

There are no SCCS identification keywords in the file. (cm7)


 

Compatibility Notes

The SCCS help command was changed to sccshelp; the help command now provides information about the operating system.
 

EXAMPLES

To get sccshelp on rmdel and two error codes, enter: sccshelp rmdel gee ad3

The sccshelp command displays: rmdel: usage:  rmdel -rSID {file ... | Directory | -}
Removes a Delta from a Source Code Control System File. The header flag you specified is not recognized. The header flag you supplied with the -d or -f flag is not correct. Choose a valid header flag.
