+git-show - Show one commit with difference it introduces.
+'git-show' <option>...
+Shows commit log and textual diff for a single commit. The
+command internally invokes 'git-rev-list' piped to
+'git-diff-tree', and takes command line options for both of
+these commands. It also presents the merge commit in a special
+format as produced by 'git-diff-tree --cc'.
+This manual page describes only the most frequently used options.
+ ID of the commit to show.
+ Controls the output format for the commit logs.
+ <format> can be one of 'raw', 'medium', 'short', 'full',
+ and 'oneline'.
