To show what changes have been made. Calculates this by trawling through the DotChangesFile (.changes) in the WebDataDirectory.

Note: this is different from the mechanism used by WebChanges which does not use the DotChangesFile; instead WebChanges contains a SEARCH directive that instructs TWiki to sort the files based on their change dates. See AboutWebChanges.

Version 1.14 of this CgiScript is considered a FatCgiScript because the following code segment is in this script rather than in a backend module where it could be called independently:

    foreach( reverse split( /\n/, $changes ) ) {
        @bar = split( /\t/ );
        if( ( ! %exclude ) || ( ! $exclude{ $bar[0] } ) ) {
            next unless TWiki::Store::topicExists( $webName, $bar[0] );
            $foo = $text;
            $foo =~ s/%TOPICNAME%/$bar[0]/go;
            $wikiuser = &TWiki::userToWikiName( $bar[1] );
            $foo =~ s/%AUTHOR%/$wikiuser/go;
            $foo =~ s/%LOCKED%//go;
            $time = &TWiki::formatGmTime( $bar[2] );
            $frev = "";
            if( $bar[3] ) {
                if( $bar[3] > 1 ) {
                    $frev = "r1.$bar[3]";
                } else {
                    $frev = "<b>NEW</b>";
            $foo =~ s/%TIME%/$time/go;
            $foo =~ s/%REVISION%/$frev/go;
            $foo = &TWiki::getRenderedVersion( $foo );

            $summary = &TWiki::Store::readFileHead( "$dataDir\/$webName\/$bar[0].txt", 16 );
            $summary = &TWiki::makeTopicSummary( $summary, $bar[0], $webName );
            $foo =~ s/%TEXTHEAD%/$summary/go;

            print $foo;
            $exclude{ $bar[0] } = "1";
