rlog - print log messages and other information on RCS files
rlog [options] file ...
rlog prints information about RCS files. Files ending in ,v are RCS
files; all others are working files. If a working file is given, rlog
tries to find the corresponding RCS file first in directory ./RCS,
then in the current directory, as explained in rcsintro(5).
rlog prints the following information for each RCS file: RCS file
name, working file name, head (i.e., the number of the latest revision
on the trunk), 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. Without options,
rlog prints complete information. The options below restrict this
rlog recognizes the following options:
-ddates Print information about revisions whose check-in
date and time fall within 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 format explained in co(1).
Quoting is normally necessary, especially for <<<<
and >>>>. Note that the separator is a semicolon.
-h Print only RCS file name, working file name, head,
access list, locks, symbolic names, and suffix.
-l[lockers] Print information about locked revisions. If the
comma-separated list lockers of login names is
given, only the revisions locked by the given
login names are printed. If the list is omitted,
all locked revisions are printed.

-L Ignore RCS files that have no locks set;
convenient in combination with -R, -h, or -l.
-rrevisions Print 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 head 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.
-R Print only the name of the RCS file; convenient
for translating a working file name into an RCS
-sstates Print information about revisions whose state
attributes match one of the states given in the
comma-separated list states.
-t Print the same as -h, plus the descriptive text.
-w[logins] Prints information about revisions checked in by
users whose login names appearing in the comma-
separated list logins. If logins is omitted, the
user's login is assumed.
rlog prints the intersection of the revisions selected with the
options -d, -l, -s, -w, and -r.
Print the names of all RCS files in the subdirectory named RCS that
rlog -L -R RCS/*,v
Print the headers of those files:
rlog -L -h RCS/*,v
Print the headers plus the log messages of the locked revisions:
rlog -L -l RCS/*,v
Print complete log information:
Hewlett-Packard Company - 2 - HP-UX Release 11i: November 2000
Print the header and log messages of all revisions checked in after
1:00am on December 25th, 1991:
rlog -d">>>>12/25/92, 1:00" RCS/*,v
Print the header and log messages of those revisions that were created
between 10:00am and 2:00pm on July 4th, 1992:
rlog -d"07/04/92, 10:00 >>>> 92/07/04, 14:00" RCS/*,v
The exit status always refers to the last RCS file operated upon, and
is 0 if the operation was successful, 1 if unsuccessful.
rlog was developed by Walter F. Tichy.
