git-show(1)
===========
 
NAME
----
git-show - Show various types of objects
 
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'git show' [options] <object>...
 
DESCRIPTION
-----------
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 \--name-only).
 
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.
 
 
OPTIONS
-------
<object>...::
	The names of objects to show.
	For a more complete list of ways to spell object names, see
	"SPECIFYING REVISIONS" section in linkgit:gitrevisions[7].
