The sconsign command displays the contents of one or more .sconsign files specified by the user.
By default, sconsign dumps the entire contents of the specified file(s). Each entry is printed in the following format:
file: signature timestamp length implicit_dependency_1: signature timestamp length implicit_dependency_2: signature timestamp length action_signature [action string]
None is printed in place of any missing timestamp, bsig, or csig values for any entry or any of its dependencies. If the entry has no implicit dependencies, or no build action, the lines are simply omitted.

Prints information about only the specified ENTRY. Multiple -e options may be used, in which case information about each ENTRY is printed in the order in which the options are specified on the command line.
The file(s) to be printed are in the specified FORMAT. Legal values are dbm (the DBM format used when the SConsignFile() function is used) or sconsign (the default format used for an individual .sconsign file in each directory).
Prints a help message and exits.
Prints the list of cached implicit dependencies for all entries or the the specified entries.
Prints a pretty-printed representation of the raw Python dictionary that holds build information about individual entry (both the entry itself or its implicit dependencies). An entry's build action is still printed in its usual format.
Prints timestamps in a human-readable string, enclosed in single quotes.
Prints the timestamp information for all entries or the specified entries.
Prints labels identifying each field being printed.
