Generate ChangeLog entries from RCS files (perhaps in a CVS repository)
and the ChangeLog file (if any). An RCS file typically has a name
ending in ",v", and represents the entire history of a file that is
under revision control. The ChangeLog file logs entries for changes,
in reverse chronological order.
# Ignore log entries that start with `#'.
# Clump together log entries that start with `{topic} ',
# where `topic' contains neither white space nor `}'.
Generate entries for changes entered into RCS (or CVS) more recently
than the newest existing entry in the ChangeLog file. You can then
edit these entries by hand, and prepend them to the ChangeLog file.
Output the resulting ChangeLog entries to standard output.
Each entry looks something like this:

ChangeLog entries contain the current date, full name, email address
including hostname, the name of the affected file, and commentary.
RCS and CVS logs lack full names and email addresses, so they are
inferred from login names using a heuristic that can be overridden
via the -u option.
Ignore log entries that start with "#".
Clump together log entries that start with "{topic} ",
where "topic" contains neither white space nor "}".
If no FILE is specified, use all files under the working directory
that are maintained under version control.
Help='The default FILEs are the files registered under the working directory.

-c CHANGELOG Output a change log prefix to CHANGELOG (default ChangeLog).

-l LENGTH Try to limit log lines to LENGTH characters (default 79).
-L FILE Use rlog-format FILE for source of logs.
-L FILE Use FILE (same format as "rlog") for source of logs.
-R If no FILEs are given and RCS is used, recurse through working directory.
-r OPTION Pass OPTION to subsidiary log command.
-r OPTION Pass OPTION to subsidiary command (either "rlog" or "cvs -q log").
-t TABWIDTH Tab stops are every TABWIDTH characters (default 8).
-u "LOGIN<tab>FULLNAME<tab>MAILADDR" Assume LOGIN has FULLNAME and MAILADDR.
-u "LOGIN<tab>FULLNAME<tab>EMAILADDR" LOGIN has FULLNAME and EMAILADDR.
