<scons_function name="SCCS">
<arguments signature="env">
A factory function that
returns a Builder object
to be used to fetch source files
from SCCS.
The returned Builder
is intended to be passed to the


env.SourceCode('.', env.SCCS())

Note that
will fetch source files
from SCCS subdirectories automatically,
so configuring SCCS
as demonstrated in the above example
should only be necessary if
you are fetching from
files in the same
directory as the source files,
or if you need to explicitly specify SCCS
for a specific subdirectory.
