I've accumulated several darcs tips I'd like to share, but I'm not sure where the best place to put them is.
The manual? The wiki? A series of blog posts?
Let's start with a specific case. Where could these practical uses for "darcs changes" best be shared?
Reviewing Recent Changes
`darcs changes` has a very useful interactive mode, that allows you
to step through the patch history one patch at a time:
darcs changes -i
darcs changes --interactive
One you enter this mode, you'll see you can press "?" for further
interactive help. I find the feature to "view patch in full with pager"
particularly useful. In this way I can browse interactively through
the change history, and then "zoom in" on a specific patch.
### Show me just the last 5 patches
darcs changes --last 5
### Show me all the patches that touched file.txt
darcs changes file.txt
### Show me just the last patch that touched file.txt
darcs changes --max-count 1 --file.txt
