log options

By default, log prints all information that is available. All other options restrict the output.

-b
Print information about the revisions on the default branch, normally the highest branch on the trunk.
-d dates
Print information about revisions with a checkin date/time in the range given by the semicolon-separated list of dates. The date formats accepted are those accepted by the `-D' option to many other CVS commands (see section Common command options). Dates can be combined into ranges as follows:
d1<d2
d2>d1
Select the revisions that were deposited between d1 and d2.
<d
d>
Select all revisions dated d or earlier.
d<
>d
Select all revisions dated d or later.
d
Select the single, latest revision dated d or earlier.
The `>' or `<' characters may be followed by `=' to indicate an inclusive range rather than an exclusive one. Note that the separator is a semicolon (;).
-h
Print only the name of the RCS file, name of the file in the working directory, head, default branch, access list, locks, symbolic names, and suffix.
-l
Local; run only in current working directory. (Default is to run recursively).
-N
Do not print the list of tags for this file. This option can be very useful when your site uses a lot of tags, so rather than "more"'ing over 3 pages of tag information, the log information is presented without tags at all.
-R
Print only the name of the RCS file.
-rrevisions
Print information about revisions given in the comma-separated list revisions of revisions and ranges. The following table explains the available range formats:
rev1:rev2
Revisions rev1 to rev2 (which must be on the same branch).
:rev
Revisions from the beginning of the branch up to and including rev.
rev:
Revisions starting with rev to the end of the branch containing rev.
branch
An argument that is a branch means all revisions on that branch.
branch1:branch2
A range of branches means all revisions on the branches in that range.
branch.
The latest revision in branch.
A bare `-r' with no revisions means the latest revision on the default branch, normally the trunk. There can be no space between the `-r' option and its argument.
-s states
Print information about revisions whose state attributes match one of the states given in the comma-separated list states.
-t
Print the same as `-h', plus the descriptive text.
-wlogins
Print 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. There can be no space between the `-w' option and its argument.

log prints the intersection of the revisions selected with the options `-d', `-s', and `-w', intersected with the union of the revisions selected by `-b' and `-r'.
