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.

       -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.
