Hi all:

I am trying to find out when a line dissapeared from a file.

I am managing a configuration file and one of the config options lines
is no longer there.

I initially thought of trying to bisect the file if I can identify
when the system was properly configured. If I guess wrong I could end
up having to run multiple bisects to find the last removal of the
option line.

Does fossil have something like "perforce annotate -a" or "git log -S" or
"hg grep"?

If there is no equivalent in fossil, I am considering running:

  fossil finfo _filename_

to get a list of all the revisions where the file was changed
then for each revision:

  fossil --checkin _revision_ _filename_ | grep "option name"

Anybody have any answers, thoughts, comments or quips?

Have a great day and thanks.
                                -- rouilj
