Advanced “status” options

Two weeks ago I showed how to filter output of hg status with awk. That simple awk script removes unknown (untracked) files from output and also removes the file status: you get a simple list of modified/added files.

Actually, you can do this without using awk because Mercurial has advanced options for status command:

hg status --quiet --no-status

Or with short aliases:

hg st -q -n

The result is the same: you get the plain list of modified files, and files which are not under source control are ignored.
