I have a cloned mercurial repository (and working copy) in my own machine. Is it possible if I want to know the parent path to a specific file? For example, I cloned a repository that contains a file at

http://foo/bar/hgwebdir.cgi/repository/file_a

and file_a is located in my machine at

/home/jeffrey04/documents/repository_clone/file_a

Is there a command that I can use to get the parent path (the first url) of file_a ??!

hg paths will show the repository path, and hg root your current repository. I think you'd have to do the path munging yourself, however.

I understand hg extensions can be as simple as a python file, so might be easy to write yourself.
