Help: pull

hg pull [-u] [-f] [-r REV]... [-e CMD] [--remotecmd CMD] [SOURCE]...

pull changes from the specified source

Pull changes from a remote repository to a local one.

This finds all changes from the repository at the specified path or URL and adds them to a local repository (the current one unless -R is specified). By default, this does not update the copy of the project in the working directory.

When cloning from servers that support it, Mercurial may fetch pre-generated data. When this is done, hooks operating on incoming changesets and changegroups may fire more than once, once for each pre-generated bundle and as well as for any additional remaining data. See 'hg help -e clonebundles' for more.

Use 'hg incoming' if you want to see what would have been added by a pull at the time you issued this command. If you then decide to add those changes to the repository, you should use 'hg pull -r X' where "X" is the last changeset listed by 'hg incoming'.

If SOURCE is omitted, the 'default' path will be used. See 'hg help urls' for more information.

If multiple sources are specified, they will be pulled sequentially as if the command was run multiple time. If --update is specify and the command will stop at the first failed --update.

Specifying bookmark as "." is equivalent to specifying the active bookmark's name.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if an update had unresolved files.
