A.14.1 log options

By default, log prints all information that is available. All other options restrict the output. Note that the revision selection options (-d, -r, -s, and -w) have no effect, other than possibly causing a search for files in Attic directories, when used in conjunction with the options that restrict the output to only log header fields (-b, -h, -R, and -t) unless the -S option is also specified.

-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 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. Individual states may be any text string, though CVS commonly only uses two states, ‘Exp’ and ‘dead’. See admin options for more information.

-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’.
