hg revert

restore files to their checkout state



hg revert [OPTION]... [-r REV] [NAME]...



To check out earlier revisions, you should use hg update REV. To cancel an uncommitted merge (and lose your changes), use hg merge --abort.

With no revision specified, revert the specified files or directories to the contents they had in the parent of the working directory. This restores the contents of files to an unmodified state and unschedules adds, removes, copies, and renames. If the working directory has two parents, you must explicitly specify a revision.

Using the -r/--rev or -d/--date options, revert the given files or directories to their states as of a specific revision. Because revert does not change the working directory parents, this will cause these files to appear modified. This can be helpful to "back out" some or all of an earlier change. See hg backout for a related method.

Modified files are saved with a .orig suffix before reverting. To disable these backups, use --no-backup. It is possible to store the backup files in a custom directory relative to the root of the repository by setting the ui.origbackuppath configuration option.

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

See hg help backout for a way to reverse the effect of an earlier changeset.

Returns 0 on success.
