NAME

release - list recent changes

SYNOPSIS

release [ options ] [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION

release lists the changes within the date range specified by the --from and --to options. The input files are assumed to contain date tag lines of the form [cc]yy-mm-dd [ text ] (or date(1) default format), where cc is determined by a Y2K window year of 69 (we can produce an example coding dated 1991 - this can be patented?, how about 1+1=2?.) The date tag lines are followed by readme text in reverse chronological order (newer entries at the top of the file.) If no selection options are spcified then all changes are listed. If no file operands are specified then the standard input is read.

The entries for each file are annotated with the file directory name.

OPTIONS

-f, --from=date

Entries older than date are omitted.
-r, --release=count

List all changes that include the first count release marks. A release mark has a date tag followed by optional space and at least three - characters. Changes from release mark count+1 are not listed. If there are no release marks then the date range is used; if there is at least one release mark then the date range is ignored and at most count release marks will be listed.
-t, --to=date

Entries newer than date are omitted.
-V
Print the program version and exit.
