Hi Larry,

It looks like I have mis-understood the purpose of cvs log.

That said I still have a problem with its operation.

Say I have a directory with two files: file1 and file2.
file1 contains MyTag and file2 does not.

"cvs rlog -rMyTag:: directory"

returns the RCS logs for file1 since MyTag along with all of the RCS logs for file2 with a warning that file2 doesn't contain the tag MyTag.

I would expect that if a file doesn't contain the tag then no RCS logs are returned.

I am using CVS 1.11.1p1 on Solaris 2.6.
I have also tried downloading the latest CVS sources but they have the same behaviour.

Basically it looks like I am seeing the same behaviour as Chuck.

I think that there is a bug in cvs log (and cvs rlog) in 1.11.1.p1 in that it returns information on all the files in the module/directory you specify and not just the ones with the tags you specify.

That's not a bug -- it's the way it's designed.  The -r and -d options
only specify which log messages to display, not which files.
