hg copy

mark files as copied for the next commit



hg copy [OPTION]... [SOURCE]... DEST


Mark dest as having copies of source files. If dest is a directory, copies are put in that directory. If dest is a file, the source must be a single file.

By default, this command copies the contents of files as they exist in the working directory. If invoked with -A/--after, the operation is recorded, but no copying is performed.

This command takes effect with the next commit. To undo a copy before that, see hg revert.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if errors are encountered.


-A, --after record a copy that has already occurred
-f, --force forcibly copy over an existing managed file
-I, --include <PATTERN[+]>
 include names matching the given patterns
-X, --exclude <PATTERN[+]>
 exclude names matching the given patterns
-n, --dry-run do not perform actions, just print output

[+] marked option can be specified multiple times
