RLOG(1)                                                                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.

       -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-sepa-
           rated 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 com-
       mand 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.
