	I just did a refresh of my some of my early programming days.
	The "%W%" is an SCCS keyword. For more info on it look at:

	SCCS is an OLD version control system.

	But with that said. To make sure your script works in a Linux
	environment make the first line:


	The SCCS info should NEVER have been on the first line. While a
	line which starts with '#' is a comment it was NEVER a good way
	to make the scripts where it would work on multi-systems. The
	old way we use to do this was have the first line on a true
	Borune Shell system as:

	# above line is a comment

	Latter the standard turned into being the normal '#!/bin/sh'
