Revision 1.31 - (hide annotations)
Wed Oct 20 19:31:10 2004 UTC (13 years, 1 month ago) by bertho
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.30: +6 -0 lines
Fix a bug in the detection of branch-numbers in the logical ,v file structure
(reported by Daniel Dumitrache <ddumitrache {at} bitdefender.com>). The branch was
deduced from the revision, but that would fail for revision numbers that are
like magic branch-numbers (x.x.0.x) because they were interpreted. These
revision numbers are now correctly handled by treating them as revision numbers
and deducing the branch by eliminating the trailing .x.
1 bertho 1.28 CvsGraph 1.5.1, 15-Aug-2004
2 bertho 1.5 ===========================
3 bertho 1.1 CvsGraph creates a graphic representation of the revisions and branches in a
4     cvs/rcs repository. CvsGraph is inspired on the 'graph'-option from WinCVS. I
5     could not find something right away on the web and decided that it was time to
6     write a stand-alone version. I might have been doing some double work, but hey,
7     I like a hack.

11 bertho 1.5 New in this version
12     -------------------
13 bertho 1.14
14 bertho 1.28 - Add patch from Henrik Carlqvist <henca@users.SourceForge.net>
15     * add option rev_hidenumber for disabling revision number display.
16     * add option tag_ignore_merge for disabling merge_from/merge_to display
17     if matched with tag_ignore.
18 bertho 1.29 * add resorting of branches on how many revisions they have. This saves
19     space under circumstances.
20 bertho 1.28
21     - Add option merge_findall so that merge_from/merge_to tags can have multiple
22     matches.
23 bertho 1.26
24 bertho 1.30 - Add the patches supplied by Ville Skytta <ville.skytta@iki.fi>
25     * fix spelling in the manpages and config file
26     * fix & -> &amp; problem in config
27     * fix generics in wrapper example
28 bertho 1.23
29 bertho 1.30 - Add a fix for the zimezone problem as suggested by Henrik Carlqvist
30     <henca@users.SourceForge.net> by using the environment.
31 bertho 1.21
32 bertho 1.31 - Fix a bug in the detection of branch-numbers in the logical ,v file structure
33     (reported by Daniel Dumitrache <ddumitrache@bitdefender.com>). The branch was
34     deduced from the revision, but that would fail for revision numbers that are
35     like magic branch-numbers (x.x.0.x) because they were interpreted. These
36     revision numbers are now correctly handled.

40     Compiling
41     ---------
42 bertho 1.9
43 bertho 1.1 create directory:
44     $ cd /where/ever/you/want
45 bertho 1.28 $ tar xzf cvsgraph-1.5.1.tar.gz
46     $ cd cvsgraph-1.5.1
47 bertho 1.3 $ ./configure
48 bertho 1.1 $ make
49    
50     This should do the trick and you have an executable file 'cvsgraph' in the
51     current directory.
52    
53 bertho 1.9 NOTE: The GD library is required for CvsGraph to function. Get it from
54     http://www.boutell.com, compile it and use either --with-gd-lib=DIR
55     and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify its location. You might also have
56     to use --with-z-inc, --with-z-lib and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib
57     for gd versions 1.6 and higher.
58     If you build with static libgd (i.e. libgd.a) and already have
59     libpng.so and/or libjpeg6b.so (i.e. dynamic), then you might want to
60     try to trick configure into adding these libs to the tests by adding
61     commandline options '--with-png-lib=.' and '--with-jpeg-lib=.'.
62 bertho 1.11 If you have linked libgd with freetype, then you might also need
63     either --with-freetype-lib or --with-freetype2-lib.
64 bertho 1.1
65 bertho 1.26 There are often precompiled binaries for Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD and Windows
66     (and probably other OSes too). Check your local mirror for details. I also have
67     some links on the homepage for precompiled binaries. Please do not complain to
68     me about these binaries.
69    
70 bertho 1.1
71 bertho 1.12
72 bertho 1.1 Installing
73     ----------
74     Put the executable file 'cvsgraph' somewhere where you think it should go.
75     Normally this would be "/usr/local/bin" or "/usr/bin". The configuration file
76     ought to be put in "/usr/local/etc" or "/etc". The exact position can be
77     overriden on the commandline anyway. Edit the configuration file to your liking
78     and you should be all set.
79    
80    
81    
82     Running CvsGraph
83     ----------------
84     Do *NOT* execute the program directly from a webserver. Direct execution would
85     be very insecure. Make a wrapper cgi-script in php, perl, or whatever you
86 bertho 1.25 normally use. There are several web-based viewers with CvsGraph support:
87    
88     - ViewCVS http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net
89     - CVSweb http://www.freebsd.org/projects/cvsweb.html
90     - Chora http://www.horde.org/chora/
91 bertho 1.10
92 bertho 1.1
93 bertho 1.2 To generate an image do something like:
94 bertho 1.5 $ cvsgraph -r /home/to/repository -m module -o mygraph.png myfile.c,v
95 bertho 1.1
96     This generates a revison/branch image of the rcs file 'myfile.c,v' and puts it
97 bertho 1.5 into 'mygraph.png'. The '-r' option is the path to the repository *located and
98 bertho 1.1 accessible* on your filesystem. The '-m' is the module in the repository. Note
99     that the extension of the file ends with ",v".
100    
101 bertho 1.9 Just to make it clear: You cannot make images from a cvs-repository over the
102     internet as if you were using cvs. The repository files
103     must be on a locally mounted filesystem. However, you
104     can use cvsup or rsync to get a repository to your
105 bertho 1.18 local filesystem and make then images from there.
106 bertho 1.9
107 bertho 1.1 Type 'cvsgraph -h' to get a full list of options. If the output is not given
108     (no '-o'), then the output is written to standard output.
109    
110 bertho 1.5 Please read the manual pages cvsgraph(1) and cvsgraph.conf(5) for more
111     information on execution and configuration.
112    
113 bertho 1.1
114    
115     Todo
116     ----
117     - do a better job in making a layout (auto moving branches and rubber banding
118 bertho 1.12 revision-connectors to make place). A start is made, but this is not very
119     functional yet.
