val


NAME
     sccs-val, val - validate an SCCS file

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/ccs/bin/val -


     /usr/ccs/bin/val [-s] [-m name] [-rsid] [-y type] s.filename...


DESCRIPTION
     The val utility determines if the specified s.files meet the
     characteristics  specified  by  the indicated arguments. val
     can process up to 50 files on a single command line.


     val has a special argument, `-', which  reads  the  standard
     input until the end-of-file condition is detected. Each line
     read is independently processed as if it were a command line
     argument list.


     val generates diagnostic messages on the standard output for
     each command line and file processed and also returns a sin-
     gle 8-bit code upon exit as described below.


     The 8-bit code returned by val is a disjunction of the  pos-
     sible errors, that is, it can be interpreted as a bit string
     where (moving from left to right) the bits  set  are  inter-
     preted as follows:

       bit 0 = missing file argument
       bit 1 = unknown or duplicate option
       bit 2 = corrupted s.file
       bit 3 = can not open file or file not in s.file format
       bit 4 = the SCCS delta ID (SID) is invalid or ambiguous
       bit 5 = the SID does not exist
       bit 6 = mismatch between %Y% and -y argument
       bit 7 = mismatch between %M% and -m argument




     val can process two or more files on a given  command  line,
     and in turn can process multiple command lines (when reading
     the standard input). In these cases, an  aggregate  code  is
     returned  which is the logical OR of the codes generated for
     each command line and file processed.

OPTIONS

     The following options are supported:

     -s         Silent.  Suppresses the normal error  or  warning
                messages.


     -m name    Compares name with the  %M%  ID  keyword  in  the
                s.file.


     -rsid      Checks to see if the indicated SID is  ambiguous,
                invalid, or absent from the s.file.


     -y type    Compares type with the %Y% ID keyword.
