hg shelve [OPTION]... [FILE]...

save and set aside changes from the working directory

    Shelving takes files that "hg status" reports as not clean, saves
    the modifications to a bundle (a shelved change), and reverts the
    files so that their state in the working directory becomes clean.

    To restore these changes to the working directory, using "hg
    unshelve"; this will work even if you switch to a different

    When no files are specified, "hg shelve" saves all not-clean
    files. If specific files or directories are named, only changes to
    those files are shelved.

    In bare shelve (when no files are specified, without interactive,
    include and exclude option), shelving remembers information if the
    working directory was on newly created branch, in other words working
    directory was on different branch than its first parent. In this
    situation unshelving restores branch information to the working directory.

    Each shelved change has a name that makes it easier to find later.
    The name of a shelved change defaults to being based on the active
    bookmark, or if there is no active bookmark, the current named
    branch.  To specify a different name, use ``--name``.

    To see a list of existing shelved changes, use the ``--list``
    option. For each shelved change, this will print its name, age,
    and description; use ``--patch`` or ``--stat`` for more details.

    To delete specific shelved changes, use ``--delete``. To delete
    all shelved changes, use ``--cleanup``.
