CVS queries

Jerusalem, Israel

#1 Sep 7, 2009

Can someone point me to references of sample CVS commands which accomplish the following:

1. Given a path to a certain file on my local machine (which is of course a copy of the real file in the SVN repository), get the list of all its revisions in the HEAD (or any other branch), so that from each revision I can get the date&time of the commit, and the person who commited the file.
I tried to call the command "cvs log <path>" and even "cvs log <file_name>" but none of them helped, and I'm getting the output:
"cvs log: in directory .:
cvs [log aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first"

2. Given two dates, I want to get all the commits that have been made to a certain module in the HEAD (or any other branch) between these two specified dates.


Tell me when this thread is updated:
