The command to view the revision history in Mercurial is
hg log. This shows a lot of information: the revision number (local to the repository), the changeset ID, user, date and summary, each on a different line. This style of revision history occupies too many lines of the display.
A more compact revision history can be viewed by using:
hg log --style=compact
This shows the summary on one line and the rest of the information on a single line above it.
To view the revision history in the GNU changelog style use:
hg log --style=changelog
To apply one of these revision history styles by default on
hg log, add this to your Mercurial configuration file:
[ui] style = compact
If you have applied a different revision history style on
hg log, but want to view it in default style use:
hg log --style=default
Tried with: Mercurial 2.3.2
