18.6 Alphabetical Summary of SCCS Commands

File arguments to SCCS commands can be either filenames or directory names. Naming a directory processes all the files in that directory, with nonapplicable and unreadable files ignored. (Unreadable files produce an error message.) If in place of a file argument a dash (-) is entered, the command reads the names of files to process from standard input, one on each line.

Use the form yy [mm [dd [hh [mm [ss ]]]]] for commands that accept times and dates. Values left out default to the highest valid value. Furthermore, Solaris treats years from 69 to 99 as being in the 20th century, while years between zero and 68 are in the 21st.

On Solaris, all SCCS commands reside in /usr/ccs/bin . To use these commands, be sure to add this directory to your PATH environment variable.
