Synopsis

svn log [path]
svn log URL [path ...]

The default target is the path of your current directory. If no arguments are supplied, svn log shows the log messages for all files and directories inside of (and including) the current working directory of your working copy. You can refine the results by specifying a path, one or more revisions, or any combination of the two. The default revision range for a local path is BASE:1.

If you specify a URL alone, the command prints log messages for everything that the URL contains. If you add paths past the URL, only messages for those paths under that URL are printed. The default revision range for a URL is HEAD:1.

With --verbose, svn log also prints all affected paths with each log message. With --quiet, svn log does not print the log message body itself (this is compatible with --verbose).

Each log message is printed just once, even if more than one of the affected paths for that revision were explicitly requested. Logs follow copy history by default. Use --stop-on-copy to disable this behavior, which can be useful for determining branch points.
