RLOG(1)								       RLOG(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     rlog - print log messages and other information about RCS files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     rlog [ options ] file ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     rlog prints information about RCS files.

     Pathnames matching	an RCS suffix denote RCS files;	all others denote
     working files.  Names are paired as explained in ci(1).

     rlog prints the following information for each RCS	file: RCS pathname,
     working pathname, head (i.e., the number of the latest revision on	the
     trunk), default branch, access list, locks, symbolic names, suffix, total
     number of revisions, number of revisions selected for printing, and
     descriptive text.	This is	followed by entries for	the selected revisions
     in	reverse	chronological order for	each branch.  For each revision, rlog
     prints revision number, author, date/time,	state, number of lines
     added/deleted (with respect to the	previous revision), locker of the
     revision (if any),	and log	message.  All times are	displayed in
     Coordinated Universal Time	(UTC) by default; this can be overridden with
     -z.  Without options, rlog	prints complete	information.  The options
     below restrict this output.

     -L	 Ignore	RCS files that have no locks set.  This	is convenient in
	 combination with -h, -l, and -R.

     -R	 Print only the	name of	the RCS	file.  This is convenient for
	 translating a working pathname	into an	RCS pathname.

     -h	 Print only the	RCS pathname, working pathname,	head, default branch,
	 access	list, locks, symbolic names, and suffix.

     -t	 Print the same	as -h, plus the	descriptive text.

     -N	 Do not	print the symbolic names.

     -b	 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
	 ranges	given by the semicolon-separated list of dates.	 A range of
	 the form d1<d2	or d2>d1 selects the revisions that were deposited
	 between d1 and	d2 exclusive.  A range of the form <d or d> selects
	 all revisions earlier than d.	A range	of the form d< or >d selects
	 all revisions dated later than	d.  If < or > is followed by = then
	 the ranges are	inclusive, not exclusive.  A range of the form d
	 selects the single, latest revision dated d or	earlier.  The
	 date/time strings d, d1, and d2 are in	the free format	explained in
	 co(1).	 Quoting is normally necessary,	especially for < and >.	 Note

	 that the separator is a semicolon.

	 Print information about locked	revisions only.	 In addition, if the
	 comma-separated list lockers of login names is	given, ignore all
	 locks other than those	held by	the lockers.  For example,
	 rlog -L -R -lwft RCS/*	prints the name	of RCS files locked by the
	 user wft.

	 prints	information about revisions given in the comma-separated list
	 revisions of revisions	and ranges.  A range rev1:rev2 means revisions
	 rev1 to rev2 on the same branch, :rev means revisions from the
	 beginning of the branch up to and including rev, and rev:  means
	 revisions starting with rev to	the end	of the branch containing rev.
	 An argument that is a branch means all	revisions on that branch.  A
	 range of branches means all revisions on the branches in that range.
	 A branch followed by a	. means	the latest revision in that branch.  A
	 bare -r with no revisions means the latest revision on	the default
	 branch, normally the trunk.

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

	 prints	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.

     -T	 This option has no effect; it is present for compatibility with other
	 RCS commands.

     -V	 Print RCS's version number.

     -Vn Emulate RCS version n when generating logs.  See co(1)	for more.

	 Use suffixes to characterize RCS files.  See ci(1) for	details.

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

	  specifies the	date output format, and	specifies the default time
	  zone for date	in the -ddates option.	The zone should	be empty, a
	  numeric UTC offset, or the special string LT for local time.	The
	  default is an	empty zone, which uses the traditional RCS format of
	  UTC without any time zone indication and with	slashes	separating the
	  parts	of the date; otherwise,	times are output in ISO	8601 format
	  with time zone indication.  For example, if local time is January

	  11, 1990, 8pm	Pacific	Standard Time, eight hours west	of UTC,	then
	  the time is output as	follows:

	       option	 time output
	       -z	 1990/01/12 04:00:00	    (default)
	       -zLT	 1990-01-11 20:00:00-08
	       -z+05:30	 1990-01-12 09:30:00+05:30

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

	 rlog  -L  -R  RCS/*
	 rlog  -L  -h  RCS/*
	 rlog  -L  -l  RCS/*
	 rlog  RCS/*

     The first command prints the names	of all RCS files in the	subdirectory
     RCS that have locks.  The second command prints the headers of those
     files, and	the third prints the headers plus the log messages of the
     locked revisions.	The last command prints	complete information.

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

	  options prepended to the argument list, separated by spaces.	See
	  ci(1)	for details.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The exit status is	zero if	and only if all	operations were	successful.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The separator for revision	ranges in the -r option	used to	be - instead
     of	:, but this leads to confusion when symbolic names contain -.  For
     backwards compatibility rlog -r still supports the	old - separator, but
     it	warns about this obsolete use.
