Wed Oct 20 22:03:36 2004 UTC (12 years, 11 months ago) by bertho
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.31: +4 -0 lines
Added patch from Gordon Hollingworth <Gordon.Hollingworth {at} TTP.com> to use
mergepoints as implemented by CVSNT. Adapted the patch to enable both
tag-detected merges and mergepoints to be shows at the same time.
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.
37    
38 bertho 1.32 - Added patch from Gordon Hollingworth <Gordon.Hollingworth@TTP.com> to use
39     mergepoints as implemented by CVSNT. Adapted the patch to enable both
40     tag-detected merges and mergepoints to be shows at the same time.

43 bertho 1.1
44     Compiling
45     ---------
46 bertho 1.9
47 bertho 1.1 create directory:
48     $ cd /where/ever/you/want
49 bertho 1.28 $ tar xzf cvsgraph-1.5.1.tar.gz
50     $ cd cvsgraph-1.5.1
51 bertho 1.3 $ ./configure
52 bertho 1.1 $ make
53    
54     This should do the trick and you have an executable file 'cvsgraph' in the
55     current directory.
56    
57 bertho 1.9 NOTE: The GD library is required for CvsGraph to function. Get it from
58     http://www.boutell.com, compile it and use either --with-gd-lib=DIR
59     and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify its location. You might also have
60     to use --with-z-inc, --with-z-lib and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib
61     for gd versions 1.6 and higher.
62     If you build with static libgd (i.e. libgd.a) and already have
63     libpng.so and/or libjpeg6b.so (i.e. dynamic), then you might want to
64     try to trick configure into adding these libs to the tests by adding
65     commandline options '--with-png-lib=.' and '--with-jpeg-lib=.'.
66 bertho 1.11 If you have linked libgd with freetype, then you might also need
67     either --with-freetype-lib or --with-freetype2-lib.
68 bertho 1.1
69 bertho 1.26 There are often precompiled binaries for Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD and Windows
70     (and probably other OSes too). Check your local mirror for details. I also have
71     some links on the homepage for precompiled binaries. Please do not complain to
72     me about these binaries.
73    
74 bertho 1.1
75 bertho 1.12
76 bertho 1.1 Installing
77     ----------
78     Put the executable file 'cvsgraph' somewhere where you think it should go.
79     Normally this would be "/usr/local/bin" or "/usr/bin". The configuration file
80     ought to be put in "/usr/local/etc" or "/etc". The exact position can be
81     overriden on the commandline anyway. Edit the configuration file to your liking
82     and you should be all set.
83    
84    
85    
86     Running CvsGraph
87     ----------------
88     Do *NOT* execute the program directly from a webserver. Direct execution would
89     be very insecure. Make a wrapper cgi-script in php, perl, or whatever you
90 bertho 1.25 normally use. There are several web-based viewers with CvsGraph support:
91    
92     - ViewCVS http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net
93     - CVSweb http://www.freebsd.org/projects/cvsweb.html
94     - Chora http://www.horde.org/chora/
95 bertho 1.10
96 bertho 1.1
97 bertho 1.2 To generate an image do something like:
98 bertho 1.5 $ cvsgraph -r /home/to/repository -m module -o mygraph.png myfile.c,v
99 bertho 1.1
100     This generates a revison/branch image of the rcs file 'myfile.c,v' and puts it
101 bertho 1.5 into 'mygraph.png'. The '-r' option is the path to the repository *located and
102 bertho 1.1 accessible* on your filesystem. The '-m' is the module in the repository. Note
103     that the extension of the file ends with ",v".
104    
105 bertho 1.9 Just to make it clear: You cannot make images from a cvs-repository over the
106     internet as if you were using cvs. The repository files
107     must be on a locally mounted filesystem. However, you
108     can use cvsup or rsync to get a repository to your
109 bertho 1.18 local filesystem and make then images from there.
110 bertho 1.9
111 bertho 1.1 Type 'cvsgraph -h' to get a full list of options. If the output is not given
112     (no '-o'), then the output is written to standard output.
113    
114 bertho 1.5 Please read the manual pages cvsgraph(1) and cvsgraph.conf(5) for more
115     information on execution and configuration.
116    
117 bertho 1.1
118    
119     Todo
120     ----
121     - do a better job in making a layout (auto moving branches and rubber banding
122 bertho 1.12 revision-connectors to make place). A start is made, but this is not very
123     functional yet.
