sact — print current SCCS file editing activity


sact file ...


The sact command informs the user of any impending deltas to a named SCCS file. This situation occurs when get -e has been previously executed without a subsequent execution of delta (see delta(1) and get(1)). If a directory is named on the command line, sact behaves as though each file in the directory were specified as a named file, except that non-SCCS files (last component of path name does not begin with s.) and unreadable files are silently ignored. If a name of - is given, the standard input is read with each line being taken as the name of an SCCS file to be processed.

The output for each named file consists of five fields separated by spaces.

Field 1

SID of a delta that currently exists in the SCCS file to which changes will be made to make the new delta.

Field 2

SID for the new delta to be created.

Field 3

Logname of the user making the delta (i.e., executed a get for editing).

Field 4

Date when get -e was executed.

Field 5

Time when get -e was executed.


Use sccshelp(1) for explanations.


sact: SVID2, SVID3, XPG2, XPG3, XPG4
