cvs2html - render a CVS commit log in HTML
cvs2html [-a[-b][-k]] [-n numdif] [-l/-L home] [-e] [-f] [-d MMM DD [YYYY]] [-D DD] [-i image]] [-h] [-v] [-w framewidth] [-s percentage] [-N maxchrono] [-rrev1:rev2] [-c|-C cfilename] -O | -o htmlname [-p cvspath] [-v verbosity]
The cvs2html script fetches the commit log for a CVS module and renders it in HTML. -a Generate additional fields and files containing differences between versions in an xdiff-like side by side manner. -b Use spaces as breakpoints to wrap the text, if -a is specified. This is used to stop the two columns from exceeding the total width. -c | -C filename Save a chronologically sorted list of all log entries in html format in filename. Use -C to reverse-sort the file. -d MMM DD [YYYY] Omit all log messages prior to the given date. The first three letters of the month should be used (eg Jun 5). The year is optional. -D DD Omit all log messages older than DD days. -e Print log messages in courier (non-proportional) font. -f Generate individual log files for each file when using -o. -h Show help -i image Make image the background image. -k Ignore changes in lines caused by CVS-keyword substitutions when -a is specified. -l home Make links relative to home. -L home Make links relative to home, but substitute file extensions with .html. -n numdiff Output only the latest numdiff diffs in the log. Older commits will only have the log data displayed. -N maxchrono Show only the latest maxchrono file changes in the chronological list of changes. -o output If output is a directory, all html files produced are stored there, using the name of the repository as the base filename. Otherwise, output is used as the base name. Generate frames for easier browsing. -O output If output is a directory, all html files produced are stored there, using the name of the repository as the base filename. Otherwise, output is used as the base name. -P cvspath Set the cvs path to cvspath. -rrev1:rev2 Show only the log messages between rev1, and rev2. If a file isn't tagged, then the whole revision story of the file is shown. -s percentage Make the width of the left frame, percentage of the window. -v Insert CVSROOT information in the index. -V verbosity Set the verbosity. The higher verbosity is, the more output is printed out. -w framewidth Make the width of the left frame, framewidth pixels.
cvs2html -l http://cvs.sslug.dk/linuxbog -f -p \\ -o cvs2html/index.html -v -a -b -n 6 -C chrono.html Will create a directory called cvs2html directory. This directory will contain a log data file, for every file in the repository. The last 6 commits to every file will have a diff available. All links will be relative to http://cvs.sslug.dk/linuxbog. It will also create a file with all the log data in it, in chronological order.
The cvs2html script was written by Peter Toft and others (see the comments in /usr/bin/cvs2html for an exhaustive list). This manual page was written by Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho for Debian GNU, and modified by Pascal Hakim.
