NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       rlog  - print log messages and other information about RCS

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).  Without
       options, rlog prints  complete  information.  The  options
       below restrict this output.  Ignore RCS files that have no
       locks set. This is convenient in combination with -h,  -l,
       and -R.  Print only the name of the RCS file. This is convenient
 for translating a working  pathname  into  an  RCS
       pathname.   Print only the RCS pathname, working pathname,
       head, default branch, access list, locks, symbolic  names,
       and  suffix.   Print  the same as -h, plus the descriptive
       text.   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 inclusive.
       A range of the form <d or d> selects all revisions dated d
       or earlier. A range of the form d< or >d selects all revisions
 dated d or later. 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.  Emulate
       RCS version n when generating logs. See  co(1)  for  more.
       Use  suffixes  to  characterize  RCS  files. See ci(1) for

       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.

RESTRICTIONS    [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.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

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

       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
