Examining History in Subversion

Your Subversion repository is like a time machine. It keeps a record of every change ever committed and allows you to explore this history by examining previous versions of files and directories as well as the metadata that accompanies them.

Several commands can provide you with historical data from the repository:

svn log
Shows you broad information: log messages with date and author information attached to revisions and which paths changed in each revision
svn diff
Shows line-level details of a particular change
svn cat
Retrieves a file as it existed in a particular revision number and displays it on your screen
svn list
Displays the files in a directory for any given revision
