A.12.1 history options

Several options (shown above as ‘-report’) control what kind of report is generated:

-c

Report on each time commit was used (i.e., each time the repository was modified).

-e

Everything (all record types). Equivalent to specifying ‘-x’ with all record types. Of course, ‘-e’ will also include record types which are added in a future version of CVS; if you are writing a script which can only handle certain record types, you'll want to specify ‘-x’.

-m module

Report on a particular module. (You can meaningfully use ‘-m’ more than once on the command line.)

-o

Report on checked-out modules. This is the default report type.

-T

Report on all tags.

-x type

Extract a particular set of record types type from the CVS history. The types are indicated by single letters, which you may specify in combination.

Certain commands have a single record type:

F

release

O

checkout

E

export

T

rtag

One of five record types may result from an update:

C

A merge was necessary but collisions were detected (requiring manual merging).

G

A merge was necessary and it succeeded.

U

A working file was copied from the repository.

P

A working file was patched to match the repository.

W

The working copy of a file was deleted during update (because it was gone from the repository).

One of three record types results from commit:

A

A file was added for the first time.

M

A file was modified.

R

A file was removed.

The options shown as ‘-flags’ constrain or expand the report without requiring option arguments:

-a

Show data for all users (the default is to show data only for the user executing history).

-l

Show last modification only.

-w

Show only the records for modifications done from the same working directory where history is executing.

The options shown as ‘-options args’ constrain the report based on an argument:

-b str

Show data back to a record containing the string str in either the module name, the file name, or the repository path.

-D date

Show data since date. This is slightly different from the normal use of ‘-D date’, which selects the newest revision older than date.

-f file

Show data for a particular file (you can specify several ‘-f’ options on the same command line). This is equivalent to specifying the file on the command line.

-n module

Show data for a particular module (you can specify several ‘-n’ options on the same command line).

-p repository

Show data for a particular source repository (you can specify several ‘-p’ options on the same command line).

-r rev

Show records referring to revisions since the revision or tag named rev appears in individual RCS files. Each RCS file is searched for the revision or tag.

-t tag

Show records since tag tag was last added to the history file. This differs from the ‘-r’ flag above in that it reads only the history file, not the RCS files, and is much faster.

-u name

Show records for user name.

-z timezone

Show times in the selected records using the specified time zone instead of UTC.
