Given the following source code in file foo.c:
#include <stdio.h> 
 
static char const rcsid[] = 
	"$Id: foo.c,v 1.2 2005/11/18 09:34:51 xsa Exp $"; 
 
int 
main(void) { 
	printf("%s\n", rcsid); 
	return (0); 
}
Compile it and run ident:
$ ident foo.c foo.o 
foo.c: 
     $Id: foo.c,v 1.2 2005/11/18 09:34:51 xsa Exp $
