Or by re-writing your question to ask how to get the information you need,
not how to make a command do something it was not meant to do.
i.e. what out of `cvs history -e -a` do you actually need, to go along with
the output from `cvs log`?
I rarely, i.e., NEVER, find the information in cvs history to be of use,
except when trying to rebuild a repository from the remains of a failed raid
0 array (been there done that, better backups now), however the output of
`cvs log` as parsed by the script cvs2cl [1] is something I use almost
daily. If you still want the output of `cvs history -e -a` combined with the
output of `cvs log` then look at cvs2cl and see about writing a
script||program to do the combination for you.
