       lid - Query ID database and report results


       lid [OPTION]... PATTERN...


       Query  ID  database and report results.  By default, output consists of
       multiple lines, each line containing the matched identifier followed by
       the list of file names in which it occurs.

       -f, --file=FILE
              file name of ID database

       -i, --ignore-case
              match PATTERN case insensitively

       -l, --literal
              match PATTERN as a literal string

       -r, --regexp
              match PATTERN as a regular expression

       -w, --word
              match PATTERN as a delimited word

       -s, --substring
              match PATTERN as a substring

              Note:   If   PATTERN   contains   extended   regular  expression
              metacharacters,  it  is  interpreted  as  a  regular  expression
              substring.  Otherwise, PATTERN is interpreted as a literal word.

       -k, --key=STYLE
              STYLE is one of ‘token’, ‘pattern’ or ‘none’

       -R, --result=STYLE
              STYLE is one of ‘filenames’, ‘grep’, ‘edit’ or ‘none’

       -S, --separator=STYLE STYLE is one of ‘braces’,  ‘space’  or  ‘newline’
              only applies to file names when ‘--result=filenames’

              The above STYLE options control how query results are presented.
              Defaults are --key=token --result=filenames --separator=space

       -F, --frequency=FREQ
              find  tokens  that  occur  FREQ  times,  where  FREQ  is a range
              expressed as ‘N..M’.  If N is omitted, it defaults to 1, if M is
              omitted it defaults to MAX_USHRT

       -a, --ambiguous=LEN
              find tokens whose names are ambiguous for LEN chars

       -x, --hex
              only find numbers expressed as hexadecimal

       -d, --decimal
              only find numbers expressed as decimal

       -o, --octal
              only find numbers expressed as octal

              By default, searches match numbers of any radix.

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit
