hg bookmarks [OPTIONS]... [NAME]...

aliases: bookmark

create a new bookmark or list existing bookmarks

    Bookmarks are labels on changesets to help track lines of development.
    Bookmarks are unversioned and can be moved, renamed and deleted.
    Deleting or moving a bookmark has no effect on the associated changesets.

    Creating or updating to a bookmark causes it to be marked as 'active'.
    The active bookmark is indicated with a '*'.
    When a commit is made, the active bookmark will advance to the new commit.
    A plain :hg:`update` will also advance an active bookmark, if possible.
    Updating away from a bookmark will cause it to be deactivated.

    Bookmarks can be pushed and pulled between repositories (see
    :hg:`help push` and :hg:`help pull`). If a shared bookmark has
    diverged, a new 'divergent bookmark' of the form 'name@path' will
    be created. Using :hg:`merge` will resolve the divergence.

    Specifying bookmark as '.' to -m or -d options is equivalent to specifying
    the active bookmark's name.

    A bookmark named '@' has the special property that :hg:`clone` will
    check it out by default if it exists.

      Examples:

      - create an active bookmark for a new line of development::

          hg book new-feature

      - create an inactive bookmark as a place marker::

          hg book -i reviewed

      - create an inactive bookmark on another changeset::

          hg book -r .^ tested

      - rename bookmark turkey to dinner::

          hg book -m turkey dinner

      - move the '@' bookmark from another branch::

          hg book -f @
