hg branches [-ac]

list repository named branches

    List the repository's named branches, indicating which ones are
    inactive. If -c/--closed is specified, also list branches which have
    been marked closed (see :hg:`commit --close-branch`).

    If -a/--active is specified, only show active branches. A branch
    is considered active if it contains repository heads.

    Use the command :hg:`update` to switch to an existing branch.

    Returns 0.
