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.

The -i mode will print the artifact ID of FILENAME given the REVISION provided by the -r flag (which is required).

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.

Options:

-b|--brief
Display a brief (one line / revision) summary
--case-sensitive B
Enable or disable case-sensitive filenames. B is a boolean: "yes", "no", "true", "false", etc.
-i|--id
Print the artifact ID (requires -r)
-l|--log
Select log mode (the default)
-n|--limit N
Display the first N changes (default unlimited). N less than 0 means no limit.
--offset P
Skip P changes
-p|--print
Select print mode
-r|--revision R
Print the given revision (or ckout, if none is given) to stdout (only in print mode)
-s|--status
Select status mode (print a status indicator for FILE)
-W|--width N
Width of lines (default is to auto-detect). Must be more than 22 or else 0 to indicate no limit.
