hg grep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...

search for a pattern in specified files and revisions

    Search revisions of files for a regular expression.

    This command behaves differently than Unix grep. It only accepts
    Python/Perl regexps. It searches repository history, not the working
    directory. It always prints the revision number in which a match appears.

    By default, grep only prints output for the first revision of a file in
    which it finds a match. To get it to print every revision that contains a
    change in match status ("-" for a match that becomes a non-match, or "+"
    for a non-match that becomes a match), use the --all flag.

    Returns 0 if a match is found, 1 otherwise.
