<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="paragraph"><p>In the first and second form, copy entries from &lt;tree-ish&gt; to the index.
In the third form, set the current branch head (HEAD) to &lt;commit&gt;, optionally
modifying index and working tree to match. The &lt;tree-ish&gt;/&lt;commit&gt; defaults
to HEAD in all forms.</p></div>
<div class="dlist"><dl>
<dt class="hdlist1">
<em>git reset</em> [-q] [&lt;tree-ish&gt;] [--] &lt;paths&gt;&#8230;
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
This form resets the index entries for all &lt;paths&gt; to their
state at &lt;tree-ish&gt;. (It does not affect the working tree or
the current branch.)
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>This means that <code>git reset &lt;paths&gt;</code> is the opposite of <code>git add
&lt;paths&gt;</code>.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>After running <code>git reset &lt;paths&gt;</code> to update the index entry, you can
use <a href="git-checkout.html">git-checkout(1)</a> to check the contents out of the index to
the working tree.
Alternatively, using <a href="git-checkout.html">git-checkout(1)</a> and specifying a commit, you
can copy the contents of a path out of a commit to the index and to the
working tree in one go.</p></div>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
<em>git reset</em> (--patch | -p) [&lt;tree-ish&gt;] [--] [&lt;paths&gt;&#8230;]
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Interactively select hunks in the difference between the index
and &lt;tree-ish&gt; (defaults to HEAD). The chosen hunks are applied
in reverse to the index.
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>This means that <code>git reset -p</code> is the opposite of <code>git add -p</code>, i.e.
you can use it to selectively reset hunks. See the &#8220;Interactive Mode&#8221;
section of <a href="git-add.html">git-add(1)</a> to learn how to operate the <code>--patch</code> mode.</p></div>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
<em>git reset</em> [&lt;mode&gt;] [&lt;commit&gt;]
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
This form resets the current branch head to &lt;commit&gt; and
possibly updates the index (resetting it to the tree of &lt;commit&gt;) and
the working tree depending on &lt;mode&gt;. If &lt;mode&gt; is omitted,
defaults to "--mixed". The &lt;mode&gt; must be one of the following:
</p>
<div class="openblock">
<div class="content">
<div class="dlist"><dl>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--soft
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Does not touch the index file or the working tree at all (but
resets the head to &lt;commit&gt;, just like all modes do). This leaves
all your changed files "Changes to be committed", as <em>git status</em>
would put it.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--mixed
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Resets the index but not the working tree (i.e., the changed files
are preserved but not marked for commit) and reports what has not
been updated. This is the default action.
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>If <code>-N</code> is specified, removed paths are marked as intent-to-add (see
<a href="git-add.html">git-add(1)</a>).</p></div>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--hard
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Resets the index and working tree. Any changes to tracked files in the
working tree since &lt;commit&gt; are discarded.
</p>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--merge
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Resets the index and updates the files in the working tree that are
different between &lt;commit&gt; and HEAD, but keeps those which are
different between the index and working tree (i.e. which have changes
which have not been added).
If a file that is different between &lt;commit&gt; and the index has unstaged
changes, reset is aborted.
</p>
<div class="paragraph"><p>In other words, --merge does something like a <em>git read-tree -u -m &lt;commit&gt;</em>,
but carries forward unmerged index entries.</p></div>
</dd>
<dt class="hdlist1">
--keep
</dt>
<dd>
<p>
Resets index entries and updates files in the working tree that are
different between &lt;commit&gt; and HEAD.
If a file that is different between &lt;commit&gt; and HEAD has local changes,
reset is aborted.

You are happily working on something, and find the changes
in these files are in good order. You do not want to see them
when you run "git diff", because you plan to work on other files
and changes with these files are distracting.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Somebody asks you to pull, and the changes sound worthy of merging.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
However, you already dirtied the index (i.e. your index does
not match the HEAD commit). But you know the pull you are going
to make does not affect frotz.c or filfre.c, so you revert the
index changes for these two files. Your changes in working tree
remain there.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Then you can pull and merge, leaving frotz.c and filfre.c
changes still in the working tree.

"pull" has not made merge commit, so "git reset --hard"

logical chunk associated with its own commit. You can use git reset to rewind
history without changing the contents of your local files, and then successively
use <code>git add -p</code> to interactively select which hunks to include into each commit,
using <code>git commit -c</code> to pre-populate the commit message.</p></div>
<div class="listingblock">

<div class="colist arabic"><ol>
<li>
<p>
First, reset the history back one commit so that we remove the original
commit, but leave the working tree with all the changes. The -N ensures
that any new files added with HEAD are still marked so that git add -p
will find them.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Next, we interactively select diff hunks to add using the git add -p
facility. This will ask you about each diff hunk in sequence and you can
use simple commands such as "yes, include this", "No don&#8217;t include this"
or even the very powerful "edit" facility.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Once satisfied with the hunks you want to include, you should verify what
has been prepared for the first commit by using git diff --cached. This
shows all the changes that have been moved into the index and are about
to be committed.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Next, commit the changes stored in the index. The -c option specifies to
pre-populate the commit message from the original message that you started
is a special notation for the commit that HEAD used to be at prior to the
original reset commit (1 change ago). See <a href="git-reflog.html">git-reflog(1)</a> for more
details. You may also use any other valid commit reference.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
You can repeat steps 2-4 multiple times to break the original code into
any number of commits.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Now you&#8217;ve split out many of the changes into their own commits, and might
no longer use the patch mode of git add, in order to select all remaining
uncommitted changes.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Once again, check to verify that you&#8217;ve included what you want to. You may
also wish to verify that git diff doesn&#8217;t show any remaining changes to be
committed later.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
And finally create the final commit.

<div class="paragraph"><p>"reset --merge" is meant to be used when resetting out of a conflicted
merge. Any mergy operation guarantees that the working tree file that is
involved in the merge does not have local change wrt the index before
it starts, and that it writes the result out to the working tree. So if
we see some difference between the index and the target and also
between the index and the working tree, then it means that we are not
resetting out from a state that a mergy operation left after failing
with a conflict. That is why we disallow --merge option in this case.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>"reset --keep" is meant to be used when removing some of the last
commits in the current branch while keeping changes in the working
tree. If there could be conflicts between the changes in the commit we
want to remove and the changes in the working tree we want to keep,
the reset is disallowed. That&#8217;s why it is disallowed if there are both
changes between the working tree and HEAD, and between HEAD and the
target. To be safe, it is also disallowed when there are unmerged
entries.</p></div>
