Wing's Mercurial integration requires the hg command line executable to be installed separately from Wing. Please see for information about Mercurial. The hg executable may either be in your path or set with the Version Control > Mercurial > Mercurial Executable preference.

The Mercurial integration defines the following commands, in addition to those documented in Common Version Control Operations:

Resolve marks merge conflicts in a file to be resolved, by running hg resolve -m.

Annotate shows the revision number for every line in a file.

Pull Changes fetches changes from a remote repository to the local repository and optionally updates the working directory.

Update updates the entire working directory with changes from the local repository.

Push Changes pushes changes in the local repository to a remote repository.

Create Branch creates a new named branch and switches to it.

List Branches lists all named branches.

Switch Branch switches to a selected named branch.

Merge From Branch merges changes from a selected branch into the working directory.

Shelve moves all local changes to shelved status and returns the working directory to unchanged status.

Unshelve brings changes previously shelved back into the working directory.

List Shelves lists all change sets that have been shelved.

Rebase moves changes that have been committed but not yet pushed to the tip of the current branch. This may be used when Mercurial complains about multiple branch heads during Push. It must be preceded with Pull to get the latest changes in the repository, and then will merge pulled changes also into the working directory. This command may show the merge tool configured in the .hgrc file, if there are conflicting changes and a manual merge is necessary. It does not use Wing's integrated difference/merge tool because that does not support three way merging.
