184.108.40.206 VC Status Commands
- C-x v l
- Display version control state and change history.
To view the detailed version control status and history of a file,
type C-x v l (
vc-print-log). It displays the history of
changes to the current file, including the text of the log entries. The
output appears in a separate window. The point is centered at the
revision of the file that is currently being visited.
From the change log buffer, the following keys are used to move
between the logs of revisions and files, to view past revisions, and
to view diffs:
- Move to the previous revision-item in the buffer. (Revision entries in the log
buffer are usually in reverse-chronological order, so the previous
revision-item usually corresponds to a newer revision.) A numeric
prefix argument is a repeat count.
- Move to the next revision-item (which most often corresponds to the
previous revision of the file). A numeric prefix argument is a repeat
- Move to the log of the previous file, when the logs of multiple files
are in the log buffer (see VC Dired Mode). Otherwise, just move
to the beginning of the log. A numeric prefix argument is a repeat
count, so C-u 10 P would move backward 10 files.
- Move to the log of the next file, when the logs of multiple files are
in the log buffer (see VC Dired Mode). It also takes a numeric
prefix argument as a repeat count.
- Visit the revision indicated at the current line, like typing C-x
v ~ and specifying this revision's number (see Old Versions).
- Display the diff (see Comparing Files) between the revision
indicated at the current line and the next earlier revision. This is
useful to see what actually changed when the revision indicated on the
current line was committed.
