ClearCase Support: How to See the Version Tree of an Element


If you want to see the version tree of an element, there are several ways to do this. Th most common is to use the graphical user interface (GUI), known as xlsvtree. However, this GUI is often slow and is not easy to automatically extract data from.

Here is the command to display the version tree of an element in text format.

cleartool lsvtree FILENAME

Understanding the format of the output may take a moment to two, however it is well worth knowing.
