Help: paths

hg paths [NAME]

show aliases for remote repositories

Show definition of symbolic path name NAME. If no name is given, show definition of all available names.

Option -q/--quiet suppresses all output when searching for NAME and shows only the path names when listing all definitions.

Path names are defined in the [paths] section of your configuration file and in "/etc/mercurial/hgrc". If run inside a repository, ".hg/hgrc" is used, too.

The path names "default" and "default-push" have a special meaning. When performing a push or pull operation, they are used as fallbacks if no location is specified on the command-line. When "default-push" is set, it will be used for push and "default" will be used for pull; otherwise "default" is used as the fallback for both. When cloning a repository, the clone source is written as "default" in ".hg/hgrc".


"default" and "default-push" apply to all inbound (e.g. 'hg incoming') and outbound (e.g. 'hg outgoing', 'hg email' and 'hg bundle') operations.

See 'hg help urls' for more information.

Returns 0 on success.
