hg backout [OPTION]... [-r] REV

reverse effect of earlier changeset

    Prepare a new changeset with the effect of REV undone in the
    current working directory.

    If REV is the parent of the working directory, then this new changeset
    is committed automatically. Otherwise, hg needs to merge the
    changes and the merged result is left uncommitted.

    .. note::

      backout cannot be used to fix either an unwanted or
      incorrect merge.

    .. container:: verbose

      By default, the pending changeset will have one parent,
      maintaining a linear history. With --merge, the pending
      changeset will instead have two parents: the old parent of the
      working directory and a new child of REV that simply undoes REV.

      Before version 1.7, the behavior without --merge was equivalent
      to specifying --merge followed by :hg:`update --clean .` to
      cancel the merge and leave the child of REV as a head to be
      merged separately.

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

    Returns 0 on success, 1 if nothing to backout or there are unresolved
