cvs2html - render a CVS commit log in HTML SYNOPSIS
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] DESCRIPTION
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. Other- wise, 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. Other- wise, 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. EXAMPLE
cvs2html -l -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 It will also create a file with all the log data in it, in chronological order. AUTHORS

doctools::cvs - Processing text in 'cvs log' format SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require textutil package require doctools::cvs ?1? ::doctools::cvs::scanLog text evar cvar fvar ::doctools::cvs::toChangeLog evar cvar fvar _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides Tcl commands for the processing and reformatting text in the format generated by the cvs log command. The commands ::doctools::cvs::scanLog and ::doctools::cvs::toChangeLog are derived from code found on the Tcl'ers Wiki []. See the references at the end of the page. API
::doctools::cvs::scanLog text evar cvar fvar The command takes the text and parses it under the assumption that it contains a CVS log as generated by cvs log. The resulting information is stored in the variables whose names were specified via evar, cvar, and fvar. Already existing information in the referenced variables is preserved, allowing the caller to merge data from multiple logs into one database. varname evar (in) Has to refer to a scalar variable. After the call this variable will contain a list of all the entries found in the log file. An entry is identified through the combination of date and author, and can be split over multiple physical entries, one per touched file. It should be noted that the entries are listed in the same order as they were found in the text. This is not necessarily sorted by date or author. Each item in the list is a list containing two elements, the date of the entry, and its author, in this order. The date is formatted as year/month/day. varname cvar (in) Has to refer to an array variable. Keys are strings containing the date and author of log entries, in this order, separated by a comma. The values are lists of comments made for the entry. varname fvar (in) Has to refer to an array variable. Keys are strings containing date, author of a log entry, and a comment for that entry, in this order, separated by commas. The values are lists of the files the entry is touching. ::doctools::cvs::toChangeLog evar cvar fvar ] The three arguments for this command are the same as the last three arguments of the command ::doctools::cvs::scanLog. This com- mand however expects them to be filled with information about one or more logs. It takes this information and converts it into a text in the format of a ChangeLog as accepted and generated by emacs. The constructed text is returned as the result of the command. BUGS, IDEAS, FEEDBACK This document, and the package it describes, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems. Please report such in the category doctools of the Tcllib SF Trackers [].
