NAME

     ing messages


SYNOPSIS

     /usr/ccs/bin/help [argument]...


DESCRIPTION

     The help utility retrieves information  to  further  explain
     errors  messages  and  warnings  from SCCS commands. It also
     provides some information about SCCS command  usage.  If  no
     arguments are given, help prompts for one.

     An argument may be a message number (which normally  appears
     in  parentheses  following  each  SCCS error or warning mes-
     sage), or an SCCS  command  name.   help  responds  with  an
     explanation of the message or a usage line for the command.

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.
