3.2 Invoking vc-chlog

Synopsis:

vc-chlog [option...]

vc-dwim accepts the following options:

--address address

Use address as email address.

--changelog cfile

For all changes to files below the dirname of cfile, generate an entry for cfile with stripped names. This option may be passed multiple times.

--stdin

Read unified diff from stdin instead of with vc-dwim.

--tabsize cols

Assume tab stops at each cols instead of 8.

--user-name name

Use name as user name.

--width cols

Wrap ChangeLog entry at cols instead of 72.

--no-functions

Do not try to parse the names of functions or other identifiers that changed.

--dirty-workdir

Assume that the working directory has other changes unrelated to the patch (usually given with --stdin). This will let the file be recreated from the version control index or cache, if any.

--debug

Inhibit temp file cleanup.

--help

Display this help and exit.

--version

Output version information and exit.

The environment variables TMPDIR and USER are honored.

The files ~/.vc-chlogrc and .vc-chlogrc may contain default options, possibly with double-quoted arguments, and comment lines starting with ‘#’.
