hg annotate [-r REV] [-f] [-a] [-u] [-d] [-n] [-c] [-l] FILE...

aliases: blame

show changeset information by line for each file

    List changes in files, showing the revision id responsible for each line

    This command is useful for discovering when a change was made and by whom.

    Without the -a/--text option, annotate will avoid processing files it
    detects as binary. With -a, annotate will annotate the file anyway,
    although the results will probably be neither useful nor desirable.

    Returns 0 on success.
