C.9 The history file

The file $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history is used to log information for the history command (see history). This file must be created to turn on logging. This is done automatically if the cvs init command is used to set up the repository (see Creating a repository).

The file format of the history file is documented only in comments in the CVS source code, but generally programs should use the cvs history command to access it anyway, in case the format changes with future releases of CVS.
