Removing changes to a file from the previous commit #277

This is what the current README has:

$ git checkout HEAD^ myfile
$ git add myfile
$ git commit --amend --no-edit

This has the disadvantage of reverting the change entirely.

Another option is to use:

$ git reset HEAD^ myfile
$ git commit --amend --no-edit

which is one less command, and preserves the changes to the file in the working tree, while removing it from the commit.
