3.2 Invoking vc-chlog

Synopsis:

     vc-chlog [option...] [file...]

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 ‘#’.
