hg archive [OPTION]... DEST

create an unversioned archive of a repository revision

    By default, the revision used is the parent of the working
    directory; use -r/--rev to specify a different revision.

    The archive type is automatically detected based on file
    extension (to override, use -t/--type).

    .. container:: verbose

      Examples:

      - create a zip file containing the 1.0 release::

          hg archive -r 1.0 project-1.0.zip

      - create a tarball excluding .hg files::

          hg archive project.tar.gz -X ".hg*"

    Valid types are:

    :``files``: a directory full of files (default)
    :``tar``:   tar archive, uncompressed
    :``tbz2``:  tar archive, compressed using bzip2
    :``tgz``:   tar archive, compressed using gzip
    :``uzip``:  zip archive, uncompressed
    :``zip``:   zip archive, compressed using deflate

    The exact name of the destination archive or directory is given
    using a format string; see :hg:`help export` for details.

    Each member added to an archive file has a directory prefix
    prepended. Use -p/--prefix to specify a format string for the
    prefix. The default is the basename of the archive, with suffixes
    removed.

    Returns 0 on success.
