Help: fold

hg fold [OPTION]... [-r] REV

aliases: squash

fold multiple revisions into a single one

With --from, folds all the revisions linearly between the given revisions and the parent of the working directory.

With --exact, folds only the specified revisions while ignoring the parent of the working directory. In this case, the given revisions must form a linear unbroken chain.

Some examples:

  • Fold the current revision with its parent:
    hg fold --from .^
  • Fold all draft revisions with working directory parent:
    hg fold --from 'draft()'

    See 'hg help phases' for more about draft revisions and 'hg help revsets' for more about the 'draft()' keyword

  • Fold revisions between 3 and 6 with the working directory parent:
    hg fold --from 3::6
  • Fold revisions 3 and 4:
    hg fold "3 + 4" --exact
  • Only fold revisions linearly between foo and @:
    hg fold foo::@ --exact
