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 project.

    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.

    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 deletions. To see all changes including
       duplicates and deletions, use the --removed switch.

    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.

    Returns 0 on success.
