hg pull

pull changes from the specified source



hg pull [-u] [-f] [-r REV]... [-e CMD] [--remotecmd CMD] [SOURCE]


Pull changes from a remote repository to a local one.

This finds all changes from the repository at the specified path or URL and adds them to a local repository (the current one unless -R is specified). By default, this does not update the copy of the project in the working directory.

When cloning from servers that support it, Mercurial may fetch pre-generated data. When this is done, hooks operating on incoming changesets and changegroups may fire more than once, once for each pre-generated bundle and as well as for any additional remaining data. See hg help -e clonebundles for more.

Use hg incoming if you want to see what would have been added by a pull at the time you issued this command. If you then decide to add those changes to the repository, you should use hg pull -r X where X is the last changeset listed by hg incoming.

If SOURCE is omitted, the 'default' path will be used. See hg help urls for more information.

Specifying bookmark as . is equivalent to specifying the active bookmark's name.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if an update had unresolved files.
