-D date] files ...
For each file in files, print the head revision of the trunk, together with information on the last modification for each line. For example:
$ cvs annotate ssfile Annotations for ssfile *************** 1.1 (mary 27-Mar-96): ssfile line 1 1.2 (joe 28-Mar-96): ssfile line 2
The file `
ssfile' currently contains two lines.
ssfile line 1 line was checked in by
mary on March 27. Then, on March 28,
added a line
ssfile line 2, without modifying
ssfile line 1 line. This report doesn't
tell you anything about lines which have been deleted
or replaced; you need to use
cvs diff for that
The options to
cvs annotate are listed in
Invoking CVS, and can be used to select the files
and revisions to annotate. The options are described
in more detail in Common options.
