I found this question in the archives, but never saw an answer.  Is there a
way to get 'BASE' to work with 'cvs log'?

I would like to see cvs log messages for all the files and revisions
which will be updated by next "cvs update" command -- to get an idea
as to what has been changed.

Ideally, I would like to do "cvs log -rBASE::HEAD"

But log "-r" switch only accepts revisions, not tags (according to the
documentation). Somehow, the "HEAD" is working, but "BASE" is not (I
get "no revision `BASE' in ..." error message).

I can imagine checking each file's currently checked out revision
number and calling "cvs log" once per file... but is there an easier

Thanks in advice for any advices.

 Best wishes,
