Help: heads

hg heads [-ct] [-r STARTREV] [REV]...

show current repository heads or show branch heads

With no arguments, show all repository branch heads.

Repository "heads" are changesets with no child changesets. They are where development generally takes place and are the usual targets for update and merge operations. Branch heads are changesets that have no child changeset on the same branch.

If one or more REVs are given, only branch heads on the branches associated with the specified changesets are shown. This means that you can use "hg heads foo" to see the heads on a branch named "foo".

If -c/--closed is specified, also show branch heads marked closed (see "hg commit --close-branch").

If STARTREV is specified, only those heads that are descendants of STARTREV will be displayed.

If -t/--topo is specified, named branch mechanics will be ignored and only changesets without children will be shown.

Returns 0 if matching heads are found, 1 if not.
