interlacing (progressive load) for both png and jpeg images with image_interlace.
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.
41    
42 bertho 1.33 - Implement selection of png compression level with image_compress and enable
43     interlacing (progressive load) for both png and jpeg images with
44     image_interlace.

47 bertho 1.1
48     Compiling
49     ---------
50 bertho 1.9
51 bertho 1.1 create directory:
52     $ cd /where/ever/you/want
53 bertho 1.28 $ tar xzf cvsgraph-1.5.1.tar.gz
54     $ cd cvsgraph-1.5.1
55 bertho 1.3 $ ./configure
56 bertho 1.1 $ make
57    
58     This should do the trick and you have an executable file 'cvsgraph' in the
59     current directory.
60    
61 bertho 1.9 NOTE: The GD library is required for CvsGraph to function. Get it from
62     http://www.boutell.com, compile it and use either --with-gd-lib=DIR
63     and --with-gd-inc=DIR to specify its location. You might also have
64     to use --with-z-inc, --with-z-lib and --with-png-inc, --with-png-lib
65     for gd versions 1.6 and higher.
66     If you build with static libgd (i.e. libgd.a) and already have
67     libpng.so and/or libjpeg6b.so (i.e. dynamic), then you might want to
68     try to trick configure into adding these libs to the tests by adding
69     commandline options '--with-png-lib=.' and '--with-jpeg-lib=.'.
70 bertho 1.11 If you have linked libgd with freetype, then you might also need
71     either --with-freetype-lib or --with-freetype2-lib.
72 bertho 1.1
73 bertho 1.26 There are often precompiled binaries for Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD and Windows
74     (and probably other OSes too). Check your local mirror for details. I also have
75     some links on the homepage for precompiled binaries. Please do not complain to
76     me about these binaries.
77    
78 bertho 1.1
79 bertho 1.12
80 bertho 1.1 Installing
81     ----------
82     Put the executable file 'cvsgraph' somewhere where you think it should go.
83     Normally this would be "/usr/local/bin" or "/usr/bin". The configuration file
84     ought to be put in "/usr/local/etc" or "/etc". The exact position can be
85     overriden on the commandline anyway. Edit the configuration file to your liking
86     and you should be all set.
87    
88    
89    
90     Running CvsGraph
91     ----------------
92     Do *NOT* execute the program directly from a webserver. Direct execution would
93     be very insecure. Make a wrapper cgi-script in php, perl, or whatever you
94 bertho 1.25 normally use. There are several web-based viewers with CvsGraph support:
95    
96     - ViewCVS http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net
97     - CVSweb http://www.freebsd.org/projects/cvsweb.html
98     - Chora http://www.horde.org/chora/
99 bertho 1.10
100 bertho 1.1
101 bertho 1.2 To generate an image do something like:
102 bertho 1.5 $ cvsgraph -r /home/to/repository -m module -o mygraph.png myfile.c,v
103 bertho 1.1
104     This generates a revison/branch image of the rcs file 'myfile.c,v' and puts it
105 bertho 1.5 into 'mygraph.png'. The '-r' option is the path to the repository *located and
106 bertho 1.1 accessible* on your filesystem. The '-m' is the module in the repository. Note
107     that the extension of the file ends with ",v".
108    
109 bertho 1.9 Just to make it clear: You cannot make images from a cvs-repository over the
110     internet as if you were using cvs. The repository files
111     must be on a locally mounted filesystem. However, you
112     can use cvsup or rsync to get a repository to your
113 bertho 1.18 local filesystem and make then images from there.
114 bertho 1.9
115 bertho 1.1 Type 'cvsgraph -h' to get a full list of options. If the output is not given
116     (no '-o'), then the output is written to standard output.
117    
118 bertho 1.5 Please read the manual pages cvsgraph(1) and cvsgraph.conf(5) for more
119     information on execution and configuration.
120    
121 bertho 1.1
122    
123     Todo
124     ----
125     - do a better job in making a layout (auto moving branches and rubber banding
126 bertho 1.12 revision-connectors to make place). A start is made, but this is not very
127     functional yet.
