licensecheck - simple license checker for source files


Version v3.0.29


licensecheck --help|--version
licensecheck [options...] path [path...]


licensecheck attempts to determine the license that applies to each file passed to it, by searching the start of the file for text belonging to various licenses.
If any of the arguments passed are directories, licensecheck will add the files contained within to the list of files to process.
