Issue #1 resolved

Teach EasyMercurial the `--version` option

W. Trevor King
created an issue

I'm writing up an installation-checking tool for Software Carpentry, and a number of SWC workshops seem to have used EasyMercurial. I want an easy test to see if it's installed and working, ideally something like:

$ EasyMercurial --version
EasyMercurial version 1.2.2

However, it seems that:

  • EasyMercurial doesn't parse and command line options, and
  • EasyMercurial dies if DISPLAY is not set.

It would be nice if it did parse at least --version before trying to attach to a display.
