RLOG(1)                     General Commands Manual                    RLOG(1)



NAME
       rlog - print log messages and other information about RCS files

SYNOPSIS
       rlog [ options ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       -c
       Print the commitid if available.  -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.

       -ddates
       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.

       -l[lockers]
       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.

       -r[revisions]
       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.

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

       -w[logins]
       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.

       -xsuffixes
       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.

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

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

BUGS
       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.
