Usage: hgview [options] [filename]

Starts a visual hg repository navigator.

- With no options, starts the main repository navigator.

- If a filename is given, starts in filelog diff mode (or in
filelog navigation mode if -n option is set).

- With -r option, starts in manifest viewer mode for given
revision.

hgview: error: You are not in a repo, are you?
