A.12.1 history options
Several options (shown above as `-report') control what kind of report is generated:
- Report on each time commit was used (i.e., each time the repository was modified).
- Everything (all record types). Equivalent to specifying ‘-x’ with all record types. Of course, ‘-e’ will also include record types which are added in a future version of CVS; if you are writing a script which can only handle certain record types, you'll want to specify ‘-x’.
- Report on a particular module. (You can meaningfully use ‘-m’ more than once on the command line.)
- Report on checked-out modules. This is the default report type.
- Report on all tags.
Extract a particular set of record types type from the CVS
history. The types are indicated by single letters,
which you may specify in combination.
Certain commands have a single record type:
- A merge was necessary but collisions were detected (requiring manual merging).
- A merge was necessary and it succeeded.
- A working file was copied from the repository.
- A working file was patched to match the repository.
- The working copy of a file was deleted during update (because it was gone from the repository).
- A file was added for the first time.
- A file was modified.
- A file was removed.
The options shown as ‘-flags’ constrain or expand the report without requiring option arguments:
Show data for all users (the default is to show data
only for the user executing
- Show last modification only.
Show only the records for modifications done from the
same working directory where
The options shown as ‘-options args’ constrain the report based on an argument:
- Show data back to a record containing the string str in either the module name, the file name, or the repository path.
- Show data since date. This is slightly different from the normal use of ‘-D date’, which selects the newest revision older than date.
- Show data for a particular file (you can specify several ‘-f’ options on the same command line). This is equivalent to specifying the file on the command line.
- Show data for a particular module (you can specify several ‘-n’ options on the same command line).
- Show data for a particular source repository (you can specify several ‘-p’ options on the same command line).
- Show records referring to revisions since the revision or tag named rev appears in individual RCS files. Each RCS file is searched for the revision or tag.
- Show records since tag tag was last added to the history file. This differs from the ‘-r’ flag above in that it reads only the history file, not the RCS files, and is much faster.
- Show records for user name.
- Show times in the selected records using the specified time zone instead of UTC.
