       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 complete
       information. The options below restrict this output.  Ignore RCS	 files
       that  have no locks set. This is convenient in combination with -h, -l,
       and -R.	Print only the name of the RCS file. This  is  convenient  for
       translating  a  working	pathname into an RCS pathname.	Print only the
       RCS pathname, working pathname,	head,  default	branch,	 access	 list,
       locks,  symbolic	 names,	 and  suffix.	Print the same as -h, plus the
       descriptive text.  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<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 ear‐
       lier. 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  con‐
       taining	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.	 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
       backwards 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.
