Having trouble while checkout from Google ?

Google-code mostly uses either SVN or Mercurial tools as sub-version control systems.

But in mac osx, neither SVN nor Mercurial commands are installed by default.

First I will describe installing Mercurial.

Installation & usage steps for Mercurial ( HG ) sub-version system

1) Open this URL – http://mercurial.berkwood.com/ and download appropriate version.

Run above in terminal as illustrated below.
