svn_log — Returns the commit log messages of a repository URL
svn_log() returns the complete history of the item at the repository URL
, or the history of a specific revision
is set. This function is equivalent
svn log --verbose -r $start_revision $repos_url
For repositories with large histories, the output may
be quite large (one array item for every revision of the item).
This function does not support the
flag, nor does it support revision
must be an integer).
Repository URL of the item to retrieve log history from.
Revision number of the first log to retrieve. Use SVN_REVISON_HEAD to retrieve the log from the most recent revision.
Revision number of the last log to retrieve. Defaults to start_revision if specified or to SVN_REVISION_INITIAL otherwise.
Number of logs to retrieve.
Any combination of SVN_OMIT_MESSAGES,
SVN_STOP_ON_COPY, defaults to
SVN_DISCOVER_CHANGED_PATHS | SVN_STOP_ON_COPY
On success, this function returns an array file listing in the format of:
 => Array, ordered most recent (highest) revision first ( [rev] => integer revision number [author] => string author name [msg] => string log message [date] => string date formatted per ISO 8601, i.e. date('c') [paths] => Array, describing changed files (  => Array ( [action] => string letter signifying change [path] => absolute repository path of changed file )  => ... ) )  => ...
Note: The output will always be a numerically indexed array of arrays, even when there are none or only one log message(s).
The value of action is a subset of the » status output in the first column, where possible values are:
|M||Item/props was modified|
|A||Item was added|
|D||Item was deleted|
|R||Item was replaced|
If no changes were made to the item, an empty array is returned.
This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, its name, and surrounding documentation may change without notice in a future release of PHP. This function should be used at your own risk.
Example #1 svn_log() example
print_r( svn_log('http://www.example.com/', 23) );
The above example will output something similar to:
Array (  => Array ( [rev] => 23 [author] => 'joe' [msg] => 'Add cheese and salami to our sandwich.' [date] => '2007-04-06T16:00:27-04:00' [paths] => Array (  => Array ( [action] => 'M' [path] => '/sandwich.txt' ) ) ) )
