Help: finfo

The "finfo" command:

Usage: fossil finfo ?OPTIONS? FILENAME

Print the complete change history for a single file going backwards in time. The default mode is -l.

For the -l|--log mode: If "-b|--brief" is specified one line per revision is printed, otherwise the full comment is printed. The "-n|--limit N" and "--offset P" options limits the output to the first N changes after skipping P changes. In the -s mode prints the status as &status> &

revision>. This is a quick status and does not check for up-to-date-ness of the file.

In the -p mode, there's an optional flag "-r|--revision REVISION". The specified version (or the latest checked out version) is printed to stdout. The -p mode is another form of the "cat" command.
