Using the Gentoo Log Parser (genlop)

This tip introduces the Gentoo Log Parser (genlop), which is a utility to create useful reports from your /var/log/emerge.log file. To get started with genlop, you'll need to install it using the following command: emerge app-portage/genlop.

We can now use genlop to look at the merge history for a package (or your entire system), and to calculate the merge times for various packages. The following example looks at the merge history for Mozilla.
