hg copy [OPTION]... SOURCE... 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 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).

This command takes effect with the next commit by default.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if errors are encountered.

--forget unmark a file as copied
-A --after record a copy that has already occurred
--at-rev REV (un)mark copies in the given revision (EXPERIMENTAL)
