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].
