A.13 history--Show status of files and users

CVS can keep a history log that tracks each use of most CVS commands. You can use history to display this information in various formats.

To enable logging, the `LogHistory' config option must be set to some value other than the empty string and the history file specified by the `HistoryLogPath' option must be writable by all users who may run the CVS executable (see section The CVSROOT/config configuration file).

To enable the history command, logging must be enabled as above and the `HistorySearchPath' config option (see section The CVSROOT/config configuration file) must be set to specify some number of the history logs created thereby and these files must be readable by each user who might run the history command.

Creating a repository via the cvs init command will enable logging of all possible events to a single history log file (`$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history') with read and write permissions for all users (see section Creating a repository).

history uses `-f', `-l', `-n', and `-p' in ways that conflict with the normal use inside CVS (see section Common command options).
