A.13.1 log options

By default, log prints all information that is available. All other options restrict the output.

-b
Print information about the revisions on the default branch, normally the highest branch on the trunk.

-d dates
Print information about revisions with a checkin date/time in the range given by the semicolon-separated list of dates. The date formats accepted are those accepted by the `-D' option to many other CVS commands (see section A.5 Common command options). Dates can be combined into ranges as follows:

d1<d2
d2>d1
Select the revisions that were deposited between d1 and d2.

<d
d>
Select all revisions dated d or earlier.

d<
>d
Select all revisions dated d or later.

d
Select the single, latest revision dated d or earlier.

The `>' or `<' characters may be followed by `=' to indicate an inclusive range rather than an exclusive one.

Note that the separator is a semicolon (;).

-h
Print only the name of the RCS file, name of the file in the working directory, head, default branch, access list, locks, symbolic names, and suffix.

-l
Local; run only in current working directory. (Default is to run recursively).

-N
Do not print the list of tags for this file. This option can be very useful when your site uses a lot of tags, so rather than "more"'ing over 3 pages of tag information, the log information is presented without tags at all.

-R
Print only the name of the RCS file.

-rrevisions
Print information about revisions given in the comma-separated list revisions of revisions and ranges. The following table explains the available range formats:

rev1:rev2
Revisions rev1 to rev2 (which must be on the same branch).

rev1::rev2
The same, but excluding rev1.

:rev
::rev
Revisions from the beginning of the branch up to and including rev.

rev:
Revisions starting with rev to the end of the branch containing rev.

rev::
Revisions starting just after rev to the end of the branch containing rev.

branch
An argument that is a branch means all revisions on that branch.

branch1:branch2
branch1::branch2
A range of branches means all revisions on the branches in that range.

branch.
The latest revision in branch.

A bare `-r' with no revisions means the latest revision on the default branch, normally the trunk. There can be no space between the `-r' option and its argument.

-S
Suppress the header if no revisions are selected.

-s states
Print information about revisions whose state attributes match one of the states given in the comma-separated list states.

-t
Print the same as `-h', plus the descriptive text.

-wlogins
Print information about revisions checked in by users with login names appearing in the comma-separated list logins. If logins is omitted, the user's login is assumed. There can be no space between the `-w' option and its argument.

log prints the intersection of the revisions selected with the options `-d', `-s', and `-w', intersected with the union of the revisions selected by `-b' and `-r'.
