A.14 log—Print out log information for files

  • Synopsis: log [options] [files…]
  • Requires: repository, working directory.
  • Changes: nothing.

Display log information for files. log used to call the RCS utility rlog. Although this is no longer true in the current sources, this history determines the format of the output and the options, which are not quite in the style of the other CVS commands.

The output includes the location of the RCS file, the head revision (the latest revision on the trunk), all symbolic names (tags) and some other things. For each revision, the revision number, the author, the number of lines added/deleted and the log message are printed. All times are displayed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). (Other parts of CVS print times in the local timezone).

log uses `-R' in a way that conflicts with the normal use inside CVS (see section Common command options).
