sccshelp — ask for help on SCCS commands
The sccshelp command finds information to explain a message from an SCCS command or to explain the use of a SCCS command. Zero or more arguments can be supplied. If no arguments are given, sccshelp prompts for one:
What is the message number or SCCS command name?
The arguments can be either message numbers (which normally appear in parentheses following messages) or command names, of one of the following types:
The response of the program is the explanatory information related to the argument, if there is any.
You can use sccshelp to support other commands by means of the helploc file. To do this, create help files in the appropriate format and add the location of the helpfiles to /usr/share/lib/sccshelp/helploc.
LC_CTYPE determines the interpretation of text as single- and/or multibyte characters.
LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.
If LC_CTYPE is not specified or is null, it defaults to the value of LANG. If LANG is not specified or is null, it defaults to "C" (see lang(5)). If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, all internationalization variables default to "C". See environ(5).
When all else fails, try sscshelp stuck.
If you enter the SCCS get command without parameters, you would get the message:
ERROR: missing file arg (cm3)
If you request help for the command:
get: get [-r<SID>] [-c<cutoff>] [-i<list>] [-x<list>] [-a<seq no.>] [-k] [-e] [-l<p>] [-p] [-m] [-n] [-s] [-b] [-g] [-t] [-w<string>] file ...
If you request help for the error number:
cm3: "missing file arg" You left off the name of the file to be processed.
