Mercurial/Hg; syntax/tips for amend commit adding/reming files to latest (non-pushed) commit

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/09/01

Sometimes your latest commit isn’t what you intended. Fixing can be done, but isn’t always obvious hence these links:

Remove a new file from a commit:

cp somefile.txt somefile.txt.bak
hg forget somefile.txt
hg commit --amend

If the file was new (i.e. you had used hg add).

If that file already existed try:

cp somefile.txt somefile.txt.bak
hg revert somefile.txt --rev .~1
hg commit --amend
cp somefile.txt.bak somefile.txt
