Seeing the origin of content¶
When two or more people are working on files, it can be highly useful at times to see who created or last changed certain content. To do this, using the annotate command like this:
brz annotate readme.txt
If you are a pessimist or an optimist, you might prefer to use
one of built-in aliases for
Either way, this displays each line of the file together with
information such as:
who changed it last
when it was last changed
the commit message.
The various GUI plugins for Breezy provide graphical tools for
viewing annotation information. For example, the brz-gtk plugin
provides a GUI tool for this that can be launched using the
brz gannotate readme.txt
The GUI tools typically provide a much richer display of interesting information (e.g. all the changes in each commit) so you may prefer them over the text-based command.
