A.         Description

The lscheckout command lists the checkout records (the checkouts) for one or more elements. There are many controls for specifying the scope: which elements, directories, or VOBs; which user; which view; and so on.

Restrictions

None.

B.           Options and arguments

Listing checkouts graphically

Default

Lists checkouts in the command window.

–g/raphical

Displays checkouts in a GUI.

C.           Report format

Default

The listing of a checkout event record looks like this:

31-Aug.20:19 drp checkout version "ct+lscheckout.1" from /main/4
(reserved)   “delete extra spaces”

–l/ong

Expands the listing to include the view to which the element is checked out.

–s/hort

Restricts the listing to the pathnames of checked-out elements.

–fmt format-string

Lists information using the specified format string. For details about using this report-writing facility, see the fmt_ccase reference page.

D.           Selecting checkout records to list

Default

The listing includes all checkouts for the specified elements, including checkouts made in any view by any user.

–me

Restricts the listing to your own checkouts.

–use/r login-name

Restricts the listing to checkouts made by the specified user.

–cvi/ew

Restricts the listing to checkouts made in the current view. On UNIX systems, if there is a working directory view, lscheckout lists its checkouts; otherwise, it lists the checkouts in the set view.

–brt/ype branch-type-selector

Restricts the listing to checkouts on branches of the specified type. Specify branch-type-selector in the form [brtype:]type-name[@vob-selector]

type-name

Name of the branch type

vob-selector

VOB specifier.

Specify vob-selector in the form [vob:]pname-in-vob

 

pname-in-vob

Pathname of the VOB tag (whether or not the VOB is mounted) or of any file system object within the VOB (if the VOB is mounted)

E.            Specifying the elements

Default

If you do not specify any options, lscheckout lists all checkouts of elements in the current working directory, to any view. If the current directory is itself checked out, this is also indicated.

pname ...

One or more path names, specifying file elements and/or versions of directory elements. (A Windows path name or a UNIX standard or view-extended path name to a directory specifies the version in the view.)

·         For each pname that specifies a file element, the listing includes that element's checkout event records.

·         For each pname that specifies a version of a directory element, the listing includes checkout event records of elements cataloged in that directory version, but not checkout records for the pname directory itself.

The following options modify the processing of the pname arguments.

–r/ecurse

Lists the checkouts of elements in the entire subtree below any directory encountered in the current view. VOB symbolic links are not traversed during the recursive descent.

–d/irectory

Lists the checkouts (if any) of a directory itself, rather than the checkouts of elements cataloged in it.

–a/ll

Lists all the checkouts in the VOB containing pname. If you do not specify any pname arguments, lists all checkouts in the VOB that contains the current working directory.

Note: A file element can have several names, by virtue of one or more VOB hard links. Checking out such an element under one name causes all the names to be listed as checked out. However, the –all option lists the checked-out element only once.

–are/plicas

Lists checkouts of the element specified by pname in all replicas of the VOB that contains pname. If you do not specify any pname arguments, lists all checkouts in all replicas of the VOB that contains the current working directory.

The following option is mutually exclusive with pname arguments:

–avo/bs

Similar to –all, but includes checkouts in all VOBs active (mounted) on the local host. (If environment variable CLEARCASE_AVOBS is set to a list of VOB-tags, this set of VOBs is used instead.) This option depends on the MVFS, and so has no meaning for snapshot-view-only hosts.

Note: A view context is required when using this option.
