hg copy [OPTION]... (SOURCE... DEST | --forget DEST...)

aliases: cp

mark files as copied for the next commit

Mark dest as having copies of source files. If dest is a directory, copies are put in that directory. If dest is a file, the source must be a single file.

By default, this command copies the contents of files as they exist in the working directory. If invoked with -A/--after, the operation is recorded, but no copying is performed.

To undo marking a destination file as copied, use --forget. With that option, all given (positional) arguments are unmarked as copies. The destination file(s) will be left in place (still tracked). Note that 'hg copy --forget' behaves the same way as 'hg rename --forget'.

This command takes effect with the next commit by default.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if errors are encountered.

--at-rev REV (un)mark copies in the given revision (EXPERIMENTAL)
