hg log [OPTION]... [FILE]

aliases: history

show revision history of entire repository or files

    Print the revision history of the specified files or the entire

    If no revision range is specified, the default is ``tip:0`` unless
    --follow is set, in which case the working directory parent is
    used as the starting revision.

    File history is shown without following rename or copy history of
    files. Use -f/--follow with a filename to follow history across
    renames and copies. --follow without a filename will only show
    ancestors or descendants of the starting revision.

    By default this command prints revision number and changeset id,
    tags, non-trivial parents, user, date and time, and a summary for
    each commit. When the -v/--verbose switch is used, the list of
    changed files and full commit message are shown.

    With --graph the revisions are shown as an ASCII art DAG with the most
    recent changeset at the top.
    'o' is a changeset, '@' is a working directory parent, 'x' is obsolete,
    and '+' represents a fork where the changeset from the lines below is a
    parent of the 'o' merge on the same line.

    .. note::

       log -p/--patch may generate unexpected diff output for merge
       changesets, as it will only compare the merge changeset against
       its first parent. Also, only files different from BOTH parents
       will appear in files:.

    .. note::

       for performance reasons, log FILE may omit duplicate changes
       made on branches and will not show removals or mode changes. To
       see all such changes, use the --removed switch.

    .. container:: verbose

      Some examples:

      - changesets with full descriptions and file lists::

          hg log -v

      - changesets ancestral to the working directory::

          hg log -f

      - last 10 commits on the current branch::

          hg log -l 10 -b .

      - changesets showing all modifications of a file, including removals::

          hg log --removed file.c

      - all changesets that touch a directory, with diffs, excluding merges::

          hg log -Mp lib/

      - all revision numbers that match a keyword::

          hg log -k bug --template "{rev}\n"

      - list available log templates::

          hg log -T list

      - check if a given changeset is included in a tagged release::

          hg log -r "a21ccf and ancestor(1.9)"

      - find all changesets by some user in a date range::

          hg log -k alice -d "may 2008 to jul 2008"

      - summary of all changesets after the last tag::

          hg log -r "last(tagged())::" --template "{desc|firstline}\n"

    See :hg:`help dates` for a list of formats valid for -d/--date.

    See :hg:`help revisions` and :hg:`help revsets` for more about
    specifying revisions.

    See :hg:`help templates` for more about pre-packaged styles and
    specifying custom templates.

    Returns 0 on success.
