# Install mercurial with ''pacman -S mercurial''
At this point I had many questions. There were mingw64 toolchains and also the non-mingw version of those toolchains on Msys2. Moreover, for any program such as Python, we can call either ''/c/Python27/python.exe'' from windows
of simply ''/bin/python'' which will run the *nix executable. Also, I could not find ''libboost-python'' for Msys2 which is a dependency for pytave.
Tatsuro told to use the mingw64 toolchains that come with octave (for consistency reasons). As octave has msys toolchains along with it. And just use the extra MSYS2 toolchains on top of it.
=== Use MSYS2 on top of Octave's MSYS environment ===
