<refsect1 id='description'><title>DESCRIPTION</title>
<para>The 
<command>sconsign</command>
command
displays the contents of one or more
<markup>.sconsign</markup>
files specified by the user.</para>

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

<para>    file: signature timestamp length
            implicit_dependency_1: signature timestamp length
            implicit_dependency_2: signature timestamp length
            action_signature [action string]</para>

<para><emphasis role="bold">None</emphasis>
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.</para>

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

<refsect1 id='options'><title>OPTIONS</title>
<para>Various options control what information is printed

<para>When the signatures are being
read from a

file, or the
<option>-f dbm</option>

prints information about
