NAME

     sccs-sact, sact - show editing activity status  of  an  SCCS
     file


SYNOPSIS

     /usr/ccs/bin/sact [-s] s.filename...


DESCRIPTION

     The sact utility informs the user of any SCCS files that are
     checked out for editing.

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

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

         o    SID for the new delta to be created

         o    Username of the person who has the file checked out
              for editing.

         o    Date that the version was checked out.

         o    Time that the version was checked out.

     If a directory name is used in place of the s.filename argu-
     ment, the sact command applies to all s.files in that direc-
     tory. Unreadable s.files produce an error;  processing  con-
     tinues  with  the  next file (if any). The use of `-' as the
     s.filename argument indicates that the names of files are to
     be read from the standard input, one s.file per line.

          currently edited.

     -V   Prints the sact version number string and exists.

AUTHORS

     The SCCS suite was origininally written by Marc J.  Rochkind
     at  Bell Labs in 1972.  Release 4.0 of SCCS, introducing new
     versions of  the  programs  admin(1),  get(1),  prt(1),  and
     delta(1)  was  published on February 18, 1977; it introduced
     the new text based SCCS v4  history  file  format  (previous
     SCCS  releases used a binary history file format).  The SCCS
     suite was later maintained by various people at AT&T and Sun
     Microsystems.   Since  2006, the SCCS suite is maintained by
     Joerg Schilling.
