How to find the difference between branches in hg
Distributed revisioning systems would allow multiple branches which could be local to your computer or in the remote ones.
One aspect of working in distributed revision systems is the ability to see the diff between the branches and make a decision off of that.
Let’s say you have branch named branch-one and the other being default repo.
If you want to know what difference is there between the two branches in mercurial, say what is in the branch-one but not in the default do:
hg log -r "'branch-one' - default"
There are also a couple of predicates that you can assign – just search with “hg revsets”
Applying/Commiting mercurial patches
You want to apply the changes you have to a repository or another branch
So, basically you want to apply the patch
See how to list all the files from given revision
Here are step by step procedures
– Create the patch first. Being on your current repository do:
hg diff > mychanges.diff
BTW, you can achieve this though hg export also.
– Clone a new repository or move to the repo you want to apply the patch.
– move to your repository and apply the patch
hg import mychanges.diff
Using the above, you can apply the patch to mercurial and also see the applied path to the repository.
