When you create new files, you have to add them manually to the repository using either
hg add or
hg addremove before issuing commit.
If you often create some files you may want not to be bothered by this additional commands. Then you may use
hg commit -A which will add all new files automatically. You can even make an alias in your
.hgrc so every commit will have the option turned on.
But there might be a problem if you have some unnecessary files (like logs) that are not specified in
If for some reason you cannot/do not want to create ignore rules for them, but you still want to add some files automatically with commit you may try a simple hook in your
Where you should of course change
'glob:**.c' to a pattern that will match your files.
And do not confuse
precommit as they are totally different.
Personally I do not use this, because always before issuing a commit I do:
to see all the changes made and make sure that there are no leftover changes (like some random debugging printfs). But your situation may be different and you can give the hook a try.
