RLOG(1)								       RLOG(1)

       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
       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).  Without options, rlog prints com‐
       plete 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 trans‐
	   lating 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, nor‐
	   mally 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<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 free format explained in
	   co(1).  Quoting is normally necessary,  especially  for  <  and  >.
	   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 beginning of the branch up to and including rev, and  rev:
	   means revisions starting with rev to the end of the branch contain‐
	   ing 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.

	   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.

	   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.

       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.
