Looking into bundle files

Bundle files may contain either all or some of the changesets in a repository. To view a partial bundle, you must have a repository containing the bundle's base changesets. Then you can overlay the bundle on top of the repo like so:

$ cd repo
$ hg in bundle.hg # view the changesets added by the bundle
$ hg -R bundle.hg log # view the log of repo+bundle
$ hg -R bundle.hg diff -r tip # compare the working dir to the bundle's tip
$ hg -R bundle.hg diff -r 'ancestor(tip,.)' -r tip # similar but comparing from branch point
$ hg -R bundle.hg cat -r tip foo.txt # extract a particular file
