Help: annotate

hg annotate [-r REV] [-f] [-a] [-u] [-d] [-n] [-c] [-l] FILE...

aliases: blame

show changeset information by line for each file

List changes in files, showing the revision id responsible for each line.

This command is useful for discovering when a change was made and by whom.

If you include --file, --user, or --date, the revision number is suppressed unless you also include --number.

Without the -a/--text option, annotate will avoid processing files it detects as binary. With -a, annotate will annotate the file anyway, although the results will probably be neither useful nor desirable.

Returns 0 on success.

options ([+] can be repeated):

-r --rev REV annotate the specified revision
--follow follow copies/renames and list the filename (DEPRECATED)
--no-follow don't follow copies and renames
-a --text treat all files as text
-u --user list the author (long with -v)
-f --file list the filename
-d --date list the date (short with -q)
-n --number list the revision number (default)
-c --changeset list the changeset
