Mercurial SCM for Code Management Like CVS, SVN, or GIT

Mercurial is yet another open source code management system in the sea of SCM systems like CVS, SVN, or GIT. Honestly, I don’t know much about it to dive into details on setup and capabilities, but it’s something to push onto my plate for a little digestion and might be for you as well. Be sure to take a look at the main homepage to find out more: http://mercurial.selenic.com/

One capability that it has, which the others probably do as well, is that it has a fairly nice and clean looking web interface which can be hosted on your development PC or server for working with your code. I also know that in order to interact with the Mercurial SCM, you use the command ‘hg’, which is the element symbol for mercury. Clever, no? See the man pages here: http://linux.die.net/man/1/hg
