I don’t know how hard is to implement this, but it would be nice to have a command which shows the state of a file in a given “revision”, something like the
darcs show content -h [hash] command does.
This will help IDE plugins to get a step closer to what we already have for
This would be very cool indeed! It will also soon be feasible thanks to tags. Tags are already implemented, but I’ve stopped working on Pijul temporarily until I get a fully resilient nest.pijul.com (the previous one burned in the OVH fire in Strasbourg).
FWIW, it’s called
hg cat in Mercurial. I’d prefer calling it a
pijul cat, but that’s not too terribly important, as long as it’s a simple (one word) command.
cat is short for concatenate IIRC. That is a poor name for what that command actually does IMHO.
hg cat file1 file2 concatenates the two files into the standard output, so I think it’s rather fitting (since it behaves like
cat does), but the name I’m not too hung up on. :)
