A.15 log & rlog--Print out log information for files

Display log information for files. log used to call the RCS utility rlog. Although this is no longer true in the current sources, this history determines the format of the output and the options, which are not quite in the style of the other CVS commands.

The output includes the location of the RCS file, the head revision (the latest revision on the trunk), all symbolic names (tags) and some other things. For each revision, the revision number, the date, the author, the number of lines added/deleted, the commitid and the log message are printed. All dates are displayed in local time at the client. This is typically specified in the $TZ environment variable, which can be set to govern how log displays dates.

log uses `-R' in a way that conflicts with the normal use inside CVS (see section Common command options).
