A.12 history--Show status of files and users

CVS can keep a history file that tracks each use of the checkout, commit, rtag, update, and release commands. You can use history to display this information in various formats.

Logging must be enabled by creating a ‘history’ file in the ‘CVSROOT’ directory of the repository (see section B.9 The history file).

history uses ‘-f’, ‘-l’, ‘-n’, and ‘-p’ in ways that conflict with the normal use inside CVS (see section A.5 Common command options).
