HIST(1)			    General Commands Manual		       HIST(1)

NAME
       hist, history - print file names	from the dump

SYNOPSIS
       hist [ -vdu ] [ -s yyyymmdd ] files ...

DESCRIPTION
       Hist  prints  the  names, dates,	and sizes of all versions of the named
       files, looking backwards	in time, stored	in the dump file  system.   If
       the  file exists	in the main tree, the first line of output will	be its
       current state.  For example,

	      hist ~rsc/.bash_history

       produces

	      May 19 16:11:37 EDT 2005 /home/am3/rsc/.bash_history 6175
	      May 18 23:32:16 EDT 2005 /dump/am/2005/0519/home/am3/rsc/.bash_history 5156
	      May 17 23:32:31 EDT 2005 /dump/am/2005/0518/home/am3/rsc/.bash_history 5075
	      May 16 07:53:47 EDT 2005 /dump/am/2005/0517/home/am3/rsc/.bash_history 5065

       The -v option enables verbose debugging printout.

       The -d option causes diff(1) -c to be run for  each  adjacent  pair  of
       dump files, while -b runs diff -cb.

       The  -u option causes times to be printed in GMT	(UT) rather than local
       time.

       Finally,	the -s option sets the starting	(most  recent)	date  for  the
       output.

EXAMPLES
       Examine changes in block.c:

	      hist -d block.c
