RLOG(1)			    General Commands Manual		       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, to-
       tal number of revisions,	number of revisions selected for printing, and
       descriptive text.  This is followed by entries for the  selected	 revi-
       sions  in  reverse chronological	order for each branch.	For each revi-
       sion, 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 Co-
       ordinated  Universal Time (UTC) by default; this	can be overridden with
       -z.  Without options, rlog prints complete  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.

	   Print  only	the  working  pathname and tip-revision.  The optional
	   string is prepended to the outputline.

       -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.

       -N  Do not print	the symbolic names.

       -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 exclusive.  A range of the form <d or d> selects
	   all revisions earlier than d.  A range of the form d< or >d selects
	   all	revisions dated	later than d.  If < or > is followed by	= then
	   the ranges are inclusive, not exclusive.  A range of	the form d se-
	   lects  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.

       -T  This	option has no effect; it is  present  for  compatibility  with
	   other RCS commands.

       -V  Print RCS's version number.

       -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  se-
       lected by -b and	-r.

       -zzone specifies	the date output	format,	and specifies the default time
	      zone for date in the -ddates option.  The	zone should be	empty,
	      a	 numeric  UTC offset, or the special string LT for local time.
	      The default is an	empty zone, which  uses	 the  traditional  RCS
	      format  of UTC without any time zone indication and with slashes
	      separating the parts of the date;	otherwise, times are output in
	      ISO  8601	format with time zone indication.  For example,	if lo-
	      cal time is January 11, 1990, 8pm	Pacific	Standard  Time,	 eight
	      hours west of UTC, then the time is output as follows:

		     option    time output
		     -z	       1990/01/12 04:00:00	  (default)
		     -zLT      1990-01-11 20:00:00-08
		     -z+05:30  1990-01-12 09:30:00+05:30

	   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.
