           git show [options] <object>...


           Shows one or more objects (blobs, trees, tags and commits).
           For commits it shows the log message and textual diff. It also presents
           the merge commit in a special format as produced by git diff-tree --cc.
           For tags, it shows the tag message and the referenced objects.
           For trees, it shows the names (equivalent to git ls-tree with
           For plain blobs, it shows the plain contents.
           The command takes options applicable to the git diff-tree command to
           control how the changes the commit introduces are shown.
           This manual page describes only the most frequently used options.


               The names of objects to show. For a more complete list of ways to
               spell object names, see "SPECIFYING REVISIONS" section in git-rev-
           --pretty[=<format>], --format[=<format>]
               Pretty-print the contents of the commit logs in a given format,
               where <format> can be one of oneline, short, medium, full, fuller,
               email, raw and format:<string>. When omitted, the format defaults
               to medium.
               Note: you can specify the default pretty format in the repository
               configuration (see git-config(1)).
               Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal commit object name,
               show only a partial prefix. Non default number of digits can be
               specified with "--abbrev=<n>" (which also modifies diff output, if
               it is displayed).
               This should make "--pretty=oneline" a whole lot more readable for
               people using 80-column terminals.
               This is a shorthand for "--pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit" used
               The commit objects record the encoding used for the log message in
               their encoding header; this option can be used to tell the command
               core.notesRef and notes.displayRef variables (or corresponding
               environment overrides). Enabled by default. See git-config(1).


           If the commit is a merge, and if the pretty-format is not oneline,
           email or raw, an additional line is inserted before the Author: line.
           This line begins with "Merge: " and the sha1s of ancestral commits are
           printed, separated by spaces. Note that the listed commits may not
           necessarily be the list of the direct parent commits if you have
           limited your view of history: for example, if you are only interested
           in changes related to a certain directory or file.
           Here are some additional details for each format:
           ?    oneline
                   <sha1> <title line>
               This is designed to be as compact as possible.
           ?    short
                   commit <sha1>
                   Author: <author>
                   <title line>
           ?    medium
                   commit <sha1>
                   Author: <author>
                   Date:   <author date>
                   <title line>
                   <full commit message>
           ?    full
                   commit <sha1>
                   Author: <author>
                   Commit: <committer>
                   <title line>
                   <full commit message>
           ?    fuller
                   commit <sha1>
                   Author:     <author>
                   AuthorDate: <author date>
                   <full commit message>
           ?    raw
               The raw format shows the entire commit exactly as stored in the
               commit object. Notably, the SHA1s are displayed in full, regardless
               of whether --abbrev or --no-abbrev are used, and parents
               information show the true parent commits, without taking grafts nor
               history simplification into account.
           ?    format:
               The format: format allows you to specify which information you want
               to show. It works a little bit like printf format, with the notable
               exception that you get a newline with %n instead of \n.
               E.g, format:"The author of %h was %an, %ar%nThe title was >>%s<<%n"
               would show something like this:
                   The author of fe6e0ee was Junio C Hamano, 23 hours ago
                   The title was >>t4119: test autocomputing -p<n> for traditional diff input.<<
               The placeholders are:
               ?    %H: commit hash
               ?    %h: abbreviated commit hash
               ?    %T: tree hash
               ?    %t: abbreviated tree hash
               ?    %P: parent hashes
               ?    %p: abbreviated parent hashes
               ?    %an: author name
               ?    %aN: author name (respecting .mailmap, see git-shortlog(1) or
               ?    %ae: author email
               ?    %aE: author email (respecting .mailmap, see git-shortlog(1) or
               ?    %ad: author date (format respects --date= option)
               ?    %aD: author date, RFC2822 style
               ?    %ar: author date, relative
               ?    %cd: committer date
               ?    %cD: committer date, RFC2822 style
               ?    %cr: committer date, relative
               ?    %ct: committer date, UNIX timestamp
               ?    %ci: committer date, ISO 8601 format
               ?    %d: ref names, like the --decorate option of git-log(1)
               ?    %e: encoding
               ?    %s: subject
               ?    %f: sanitized subject line, suitable for a filename
               ?    %b: body
               ?    %N: commit notes
               ?    %gD: reflog selector, e.g., refs/stash@{1}
               ?    %gd: shortened reflog selector, e.g., stash@{1}
               ?    %gs: reflog subject
               ?    %Cred: switch color to red
               ?    %Cgreen: switch color to green
               ?    %Cblue: switch color to blue
               ?    %Creset: reset color
               ?    %C(...): color specification, as described in color.branch.*
                   config option
               ?    %m: left, right or boundary mark
               ?    %n: newline
               ?    %%: a raw %
               ?    %x00: print a byte from a hex code
               ?    %w([<w>[,<i1>[,<i2>]]]): switch line wrapping, like the -w
                   option of git-shortlog(1).
               Some placeholders may depend on other options given to the revision
               The tformat: format works exactly like format:, except that it
               provides "terminator" semantics instead of "separator" semantics.
               In other words, each commit has the message terminator character
               (usually a newline) appended, rather than a separator placed
               between entries. This means that the final entry of a single-line
               format will be properly terminated with a new line, just as the
               "oneline" format does. For example:
                   $ git log -2 --pretty=format:%h 4da45bef \
                     | perl -pe ?$_ .= " -- NO NEWLINE\n" unless /\n/?
                   7134973 -- NO NEWLINE
                   $ git log -2 --pretty=tformat:%h 4da45bef \
                     | perl -pe ?$_ .= " -- NO NEWLINE\n" unless /\n/?
               In addition, any unrecognized string that has a % in it is
               interpreted as if it has tformat: in front of it. For example,
               these two are equivalent:
                   $ git log -2 --pretty=tformat:%h 4da45bef
                   $ git log -2 --pretty=%h 4da45bef


           git show v1.0.0
               Shows the tag v1.0.0, along with the object the tags points at.
           git show v1.0.0^{tree}
               Shows the tree pointed to by the tag v1.0.0.
           git show next~10:Documentation/README
               Shows the contents of the file Documentation/README as they were
               current in the 10th last commit of the branch next.
           git show master:Makefile master:t/Makefile
               Concatenates the contents of said Makefiles in the head of the
               branch master.


           At the core level, git is character encoding agnostic.
           ?   The pathnames recorded in the index and in the tree objects are
               treated as uninterpreted sequences of non-NUL bytes. What
               readdir(2) returns are what are recorded and compared with the data
               git keeps track of, which in turn are expected to be what lstat(2)
               and creat(2) accepts. There is no such thing as pathname encoding
               you explicitly say your project uses a legacy encoding. The way to
               say this is to have i18n.commitencoding in .git/config file, like
                           commitencoding = ISO-8859-1
               Commit objects created with the above setting record the value of
               i18n.commitencoding in its encoding header. This is to help other
               people who look at them later. Lack of this header implies that the
               commit log message is encoded in UTF-8.
            2.  git log, git show, git blame and friends look at the encoding
               header of a commit object, and try to re-code the log message into
               UTF-8 unless otherwise specified. You can specify the desired
               output encoding with i18n.logoutputencoding in .git/config file,
               like this:
                           logoutputencoding = ISO-8859-1
               If you do not have this configuration variable, the value of
               i18n.commitencoding is used instead.
           Note that we deliberately chose not to re-code the commit log message
           when a commit is made to force UTF-8 at the commit object level,
           because re-coding to UTF-8 is not necessarily a reversible operation.
