WHAT(1) BSD General Commands Manual WHAT(1)NAMEwhat — show what versions of object modules were used to construct a file
SYNOPSISwhat name ...
What reads each file name and searches 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 null character, newline,
double quote, or “> character.”
As BSD is not licensed to distribute SCCS this is a rewrite of the what
command which is part of SCCS, and may not behave exactly the same as
that command does.
The what command appeared in 4.0BSD.
