hg merge [-P] [[-r] REV]

merge another revision into working directory

The current working directory is updated with all changes made in the requested revision since the last common predecessor revision.

Files that changed between either parent are marked as changed for the next commit and a commit must be performed before any further updates to the repository are allowed. The next commit will have two parents.

"--tool" can be used to specify the merge tool used for file merges. It overrides the HGMERGE environment variable and your configuration files. See 'hg help merge-tools' for options.

If no revision is specified, the working directory's parent is a head revision, and the current branch contains exactly one other head, the other head is merged with by default. Otherwise, an explicit revision with which to merge with must be provided.

See 'hg help resolve' for information on handling file conflicts.

To undo an uncommitted merge, use 'hg update --clean .' which will check out a clean copy of the original merge parent, losing all changes.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if there are unresolved files.
