Change git binary location #276

I'm just discovered that I cannot use Homebrew installation of git as the default git binary for PeepOpen.

I have Xcode 4 installed, therefore I have git in /usr/bin. I also have git (1.7.9) installed by Homebrew at /usr/local/bin, so I altered my .zshrc to have /usr/local/bin before /usr/bin in $PATH variable then I can use Homebrew git by default.

which git outputs /usr/local/bin/git. Great!

However, triggering PeepOpen (from MacVim, Terminal) still makes it use the old git in /usr/bin. Please see screenshot:

git binary location

I'm not sure that whether the newest version of git can perform better than one installed by Xcode or not but I would like to see PeepOpen can use the newer one. Is it a bug of PeepOpen?

Thank you and best regards,

Ngoc Pham


+1 on this : we should be able to use the git version we want.
