RcpathExtension

This extension is not distributed with Mercurial.

Author: G. Grothendieck

Download site: Download direct from this page - attachment:rcpath.py

Overview

This extension displays Mercurial configuration file paths and names.

hg rcpath

show path/file names to startup files

options:

 -a --all         all path/names that could be used
 -d --duplicates  retain duplicates

use "hg -v help rcpath" to show global options

Configuration

Configure your .hgrc to enable the extension by adding following lines:

[extensions]
hgext.rcpath =
#or, if rcpath.py is not in the hgext folder:
#rpcath = /path/to/rcpath.py

To perform the above configuration you will need to know at least one .hgrc or mercurial.ini pathname. The information for this can be found at [http://www.selenic.com/hg/?f=-1;style=raw;file=doc/hgrc.5.txt hgrc.5.txt] and includes locations such as ~/.hgrc and usually /etc/mercurial/hgrc on UNIX/Linux and %USERPROFILE%\.hgrc (e.g. C:\Users\JoeDoe\.hgrc) on Windows.

If you can't figure it out from that then the following shows how to get a list of the pathnames without previously installing rcpath. Make sure that you have a working tar (Windows users can download and install Rtools from http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/ which contains tar.exe that can be placed on the PATH or in the current directory or get tar.exe from one of any of a number of other free sources on the net) and Python:

1. download mercurial source from:

http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/release

2. run the following console/shell commands except the last two lines are entered into the python command line. Also note that the portion typed by the user is the portion after the last > on each line. The example here uses Mercurial 1.0.2 but replace that with whatever is the latest version:

C:\tmp> tar xvfz mercurial-1.0.2.tar.gz
C:\tmp> cd mercurial-1.0.2/mercurial
C:\tmp\mercurial-1.0.2\mercurial> python
>>> from util import *
>>> rcpath() 

Examples

Here is an example of the use of the rcpath extension. The first shows the two rc files that are currently being used.

C:\>hg rcpath
C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg\mercurial.ini
C:\Users\Jones\.hgrc

The second output line of the following example did not appear in the previous example showing that in addition to the pathnames that are being used that C:\Users\Jones\mercurial.ini could potentially be used as well.

C:\>hg rcpath -a
C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg\mercurial.ini
C:\Users\Jones\mercurial.ini
C:\Users\Jones\.hgrc
