2.10 Invoking rlog

rcs log [options] file …
(or “rlog” instead of “rcs log”)

The rlog command displays information about RCS files.


Ignore RCS files with no locks set.


Print only the name of the RCS file.


Print only the “header” information.


Like -h, but also include the description.


Omit symbolic names.


Select the default branch.


See Date option. Select revisions based on timestamp, in the range dates, with spec:


single revision d or earlier


between d1 and d2, exclusive


before d


after d

Instead of ‘<’ or ‘>’, you can use ‘<=’ or ‘>=’, respectively, to specify inclusive ranges. dates may also be a list of semicolon-separated specs.


Select revisions locked by who (see Delim-separated list) only, or by anyone if who is omitted.


Select revisions in revs (see Delim-separated list), one of: rev, rev:, :rev, rev1:rev2.


Select revisions with specified state(s) (see State option).


Select revisions checked in by who (see Delim-separated list), or by the user if who is omitted.


See Misc common options.


See Date option. This option also changes the output format of the date to use hyphens instead of slashes. For example:

$ rlog t,v  # without -z
date: 2010/10/02 04:35:26;  [...]

$ rlog -z+0200 t,v
date: 2010-10-02 06:35:26+02;  [...]

These options have no effect, and are included solely for consistency with other commands (see Environment): ‘-q’, ‘-T’.
