A high-quality SCM

Mercurial for Windows is a distributed version control system for source code and other (primarily textual) files. Developers use it to administer the source code. It has two primary purposes: it stores all previous versions of each file, and it can merge different versions of your code, i.e., employees can work independently on the code and then merge their changes. We will tell you more about this program.

What is this program used for?

Without Mercurial, you could try to save previous versions by just creating many copies of the code directory. However, this is quite difficult, takes a lot of disk space, and creates confusion. Mercurial for Windows is the best version control system. It is helpful for collaborative software development as it helps many developers not get mixed up in many versions of their product and control the process more efficiently.

How does this program work?

It would be best if you had a repository to take advantage of version control. The repository stores all previous versions of all your files. The program does not keep all prior versions to save disk space. It only supports a compact list of changes. Mercurial is a distributed system, so you can use it without a central server, using just your computer.
