       sconsign - print SCons .sconsign file information


       sconsign [ options...  ] file [ ... ]


       The sconsign command displays the contents of one or more .sconsign files specified by the

       By default, sconsign dumps the entire contents of the specified file(s).   Each  entry  is
       printed in the following format:

           file: signature timestamp length
                   implicit_dependency_1: signature timestamp length
                   implicit_dependency_2: signature timestamp length
                   action_signature [action string]

       None  is  printed in place of any missing timestamp, bsig, or csig values for any entry or
       any of its dependencies.  If the entry has no implicit dependencies, or no  build  action,
       the lines are simply omitted.

       By  default, sconsign assumes that any file arguments that end with a .dbm suffix contains
       signature entries for more than one directory (that is, was specified by the  SConsignFile
       ()  function).  Any file argument that does not end in .dbm is assumed to be a traditional
       .sconsign file containing the signature entries  for  a  single  directory.   An  explicit
       format may be specified using the -f or --file= options.


       Various options control what information is printed and the format:

       -a, --act, --action
              Prints the build action information for all entries or the specified entries.

       -c, --csig
              Prints  the  content  signature (csig) information for all entries or the specified

       -d DIRECTORY, --dir=DIRECTORY
              When the signatures are being read from a .dbm file, or the -f dbm or  --format=dbm
              options  are  used, prints information about only the signatures for entries in the
              specified DIRECTORY.

       -e ENTRY, --entry=ENTRY
              Prints information about only the specified ENTRY.   Multiple  -e  options  may  be
              used,  in  which case information about each ENTRY is printed in the order in which
              the options are specified on the command line.

       -f FORMAT, --format=FORMAT
              The file(s) to be printed are in the specified FORMAT.  Legal values are  dbm  (the
              DBM  format used when the SConsignFile() function is used) or sconsign (the default
              format used for an individual .sconsign file in each directory).

       -h, --help
              Prints a help message and exits.

       -i, --implicit
              Prints the list of  cached  implicit  dependencies  for  all  entries  or  the  the
              specified entries.

       --raw  Prints  a  pretty-printed  representation  of  the raw Python dictionary that holds
              build information about individual entry (both the entry  itself  or  its  implicit
              dependencies).  An entry's build action is still printed in its usual format.

       -r, --readable
              Prints timestamps in a human-readable string, enclosed in single quotes.

       -t, --timestamp
              Prints the timestamp information for all entries or the specified entries.

       -v, --verbose
              Prints labels identifying each field being printed.


              Specifies  the  directory  that  contains  the  SCons Python module directory (e.g.
              /home/aroach/scons-src-0.01/src/engine).  on the command line.
