Help: parents

hg parents [-r REV] [FILE]

show the parents of the working directory or revision (DEPRECATED)

Print the working directory's parent revisions. If a revision is given via -r/--rev, the parent of that revision will be printed. If a file argument is given, the revision in which the file was last changed (before the working directory revision or the argument to --rev if given) is printed.

This command is equivalent to:

hg log -r "p1()+p2()" or
hg log -r "p1(REV)+p2(REV)" or
hg log -r "max(::p1() and file(FILE))+max(::p2() and file(FILE))" or
hg log -r "max(::p1(REV) and file(FILE))+max(::p2(REV) and file(FILE))"

See 'hg summary' and 'hg help revsets' for related information.

Returns 0 on success.
