hg identify [-nibtB] [-r REV] [SOURCE]

aliases: id

identify the working directory or specified revision

    Print a summary identifying the repository state at REV using one or
    two parent hash identifiers, followed by a "+" if the working
    directory has uncommitted changes, the branch name (if not default),
    a list of tags, and a list of bookmarks.

    When REV is not given, print a summary of the current state of the
    repository including the working directory. Specify -r. to get information
    of the working directory parent without scanning uncommitted changes.

    Specifying a path to a repository root or Mercurial bundle will
    cause lookup to operate on that repository/bundle.

    .. container:: verbose


      - generate a build identifier for the working directory::

          hg id --id > build-id.dat

      - find the revision corresponding to a tag::

          hg id -n -r 1.3

      - check the most recent revision of a remote repository::

          hg id -r tip https://www.mercurial-scm.org/repo/hg/

    See :hg:`log` for generating more information about specific revisions,
    including full hash identifiers.

    Returns 0 if successful.
