CVS--Concurrent Versions System v188.8.131.52
A.13.1 log options
log prints all information that is
available. All other options restrict the output.
- Print information about the revisions on the default
branch, normally the highest branch on the trunk.
- 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:
- Select the revisions that were deposited between
d1 and d2.
- Select all revisions dated d or earlier.
- Select all revisions dated d or later.
- Select the single, latest revision dated d or
The `>' or `<' characters may be followed by
`=' to indicate an inclusive range rather than an
Note that the separator is a semicolon (;).
- 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
- Local; run only in current working directory. (Default
is to run recursively).
- 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.
- Print only the name of the RCS file.
- Print information about revisions given in the
comma-separated list revisions of revisions and
ranges. The following table explains the available
- Revisions rev1 to rev2 (which must be on
the same branch).
- The same, but excluding rev1.
- Revisions from the beginning of the branch up to
and including rev.
- Revisions starting with rev to the end of the
branch containing rev.
- Revisions starting just after rev to the end of the
branch containing rev.
- An argument that is a branch means all revisions on
- A range of branches means all revisions
on the branches in that range.
- 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
- Suppress the header if no revisions are selected.
- Print information about revisions whose state
attributes match one of the states given in the
comma-separated list states.
- Print the same as `-h', plus the descriptive text.
- 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'.
