NAME

Scat - concatenate and display files read from SRB space


SYNOPSIS

Scat [-X][-C n] [-T ticket] [-V versionString] [-A condition] srbObj ...

Scat [-aChlX] [-c condition]


DESCRIPTION

Scat reads each srbObj from SRB space and writes it on the standard output. With -C option, one can read a particular copy of srbObj, if it exists. With -A option, only srbObj which conforms to the condition are chosen.

The second synopsis applies the condition and writes the resulting objects to standard out.

If using a ticket, one need not give a srbObj name if the ticket is issued for a particular dataset.

If any srbObj is replicated then only one of the copies is displayed.

The user should have at least 'read' permission for each SrbObj or a ticket (for user or 'ticketuser' id) to access the SrbObj.

The srbObj argument can be a path name in the SRB collection hierarchy.
