Several options (shown above as `-report') control what
kind of report is generated:
Report on each time commit was used (i.e., each time
the repository was modified).
Everything (all record types). Equivalent to
specifying `-x' with all record types. Of course,
`-e' will also include record types which are
added in a future version of CVS; if you are
writing a script which can only handle certain record
types, you'll want to specify `-x'.
Report on a particular module. (You can meaningfully
use `-m' more than once on the command line.)
Report on checked-out modules.
Report on all tags.
Extract a particular set of record types type from the CVS
history. The types are indicated by single letters,
which you may specify in combination.
Certain commands have a single record type:
One of four record types may result from an update:
One of three record types results from commit:
A merge was necessary but collisions were
detected (requiring manual merging).
A merge was necessary and it succeeded.
A working file was copied from the repository.
The working copy of a file was deleted during
update (because it was gone from the repository).
A file was added for the first time.
A file was modified.
A file was removed.
The options shown as `-flags' constrain or expand
the report without requiring option arguments:
Show data for all users (the default is to show data
only for the user executing
Show last modification only.
Show only the records for modifications done from the
same working directory where
The options shown as `-options args' constrain the report
based on an argument:
Show data back to a record containing the string
str in either the module name, the file name, or
the repository path.
Show data since date. This is slightly different
from the normal use of `-D date', which
selects the newest revision older than date.
Show data for a particular file
(you can specify several `-f' options on the same command line).
This is equivalent to specifying the file on the command line.
Show data for a particular module
(you can specify several `-n' options on the same command line).
Show data for a particular source repository (you
can specify several `-p' options on the same command
Show records referring to revisions since the revision
or tag named rev appears in individual RCS
files. Each RCS file is searched for the revision or
Show records since tag tag was last added to the
history file. This differs from the `-r' flag
above in that it reads only the history file, not the
RCS files, and is much faster.
Show records for user name.
Show times in the selected records using the specified
time zone instead of UTC.
