I am trying to download a sample project of CorePlot from:

There, they have mentioned below command to execute for getting a legal copy:

hg clone core-plot

But My Mac OS X terminal says that there is no command called hg.

What should I do?

See the link on this page of that site under GUI and IDE access. That link will lead you to a page with different versions of Mercurial for various operating systems: – Telemachus Nov 10 '09 at 0:37

You need to install Mercurial.

Have you tried installing with sudo? – John T Nov 10 '09 at 0:42
Run the command sudo port install mercurial – John T Nov 10 '09 at 3:13
If it can't find the port command, something is wrong with your installation of Macports. – John T Nov 10 '09 at 16:33
I have installed fink, Mac ports & Python successfully but I am still not able to execute the command mentioned in question. (hg clone). – Sagar R. Kothari Nov 10 '09 at 19:13
Where is the port binary located? Type which port and if a path to it isn't displayed, you'll need to add it's location to your path. – John T Nov 10 '09 at 19:37
