  rlog - print log messages and	other information about	RCS files


  rlog [options] file...


  rlog prints information about	RCS files.

  Pathnames matching an	RCS suffix denote RCS files; all others	denote work-
  ing 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 revi-
  sion (if any), and log message. All times are	displayed in Coordinated
  Universal Time (UTC).	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 combina-
      tion 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.

  -b  Print information	about the revisions on the default branch, normally
      the highest branch on the	trunk.

      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<&lt;d2 or d2>&gt;d1 selects the revisions	that were deposited between
      d1 and d2	inclusive.  A range of the form	<&lt;d or d>&gt; selects all revi-
      sions dated d or earlier.	A range	of the form d<&lt; or >&gt;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 free format explained in co(1). Quoting is normally neces-
      sary, especially for <&lt; and >&gt;. Note that the separator is a semicolon.

      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.

      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 begin-
      ning 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, nor-
      mally the	trunk.

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

      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.

  -Vn Emulate RCS version n when generating logs. See co(1) for	more.

      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.


  The separator	for revision ranges in the -r option used to be	- instead of
  :, but this leads to confusion when symbolic names contain -.	 For back-
  wards	compatibility rlog -r still supports the old - separator, but it
  warns	about this obsolete use.


       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.


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


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