SYNOPSIS

hg clone http://code.swtch.com/plan9port plan9

hg pull -u

hg diff [ -r revision ] [ path ... ]

hg serve

hg view

web http://code.swtch.com/plan9port

DESCRIPTION

The master source tree for Plan 9 from User Space is maintained using the source control system Mercurial as a substitute for Plan 9’s replica(8) and dump file system.

The first argument to hg is a command, which determines the form of the rest of the command line.

The clone command downloads a copy of the tree into the directory plan9, which it will create. After hg clone, the other commands listed should be run within the plan9 directory tree.

Unlike CVS, Mercurial downloads the entire revision history of Plan 9 from User Space in addition to the current tree.

Hg pull incorporates changes from the master repository into the local revision history. The -u flag applies these changes to the current file tree.

Hg diff runs Unix’s diff(1) to compare the files in the local tree with the corresponding files in the revision history. By default it compares against the version that was most recently incorporated into the local tree. The -r flag specifies an alternate version to compare against. The special revision tip refers to the most recent version on the server.

Hg serve starts an HTTP server serving information about the local repository at the address http://localhost:8000/.

Hg view starts an interactive history viewer.

The Mercurial tree can be inspected on the web at
