NAME

git − GNU Interactive Tools

SYNTAX

git [options] [path1] [path2]
gitps
[options]
gitview
[options] filename

NOTE

The main configuration file of the GIT package is .gitrc.TERM where TERM is the value of the environment variable ’TERM’ e.g for Linux console your environment contains something like ’TERM=console’ so the configuration file name is .gitrc.console. You can (and should) have a configuration file for each terminal type you use.

DESCRIPTION

git is a file system browser with some shell facilities which was designed to make your work much easier and much efficient.

gitps is an interactive process viewer/killer. It calls internally the ps(1) utility so that’s the reason why gitps parameters are in fact ps(1) ones. Running gitps it is self explanatory. Use the arrows, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End, ^N, ^P, ^V, ESC v to move in the list, ^L to refresh it and F10 or ^G to leave. You can change these keys, just read the sections [GITPS-Setup], [GITPS-Color], [GITPS-Monochrome] and [GITPS-Keys] in the configuration file .gitrc.TERM. See also CONFIGURATION FILES.

gitview is an hex/ascii file viewer. Use the arrows, PageUp, PageDown, Home, End, ^N, ^P, ^V, ESC v to move in the file, ^L to refresh the screen and F10 or ^G to leave. You can change those keys, just read the sections [GITVIEW-Setup], [GITVIEW-Color], [GITVIEW-Monochrome] and [GITVIEW-Keys] in the configuration file .gitrc.TERM. See also CONFIGURATION FILES.

FILE-SYSTEM BROWSER

git is made of two panels. The left one and the right one. Each one contains a file system directory. You can browse the directory tree with the usual cursor keys and pressing ENTER when you want to enter or leave a directory. You may change the panels by pressing TAB. See also BUILT-IN COMMANDS.

INPUT LINE

Under the two panels there is a shell like input line which you can use to type normal shell commands. The input line supports unlimited characters and keeps a history of the typed commands. GIT uses the GNU history library for that. See also BUILT-IN COMMANDS.

WARNINGS AND ERRORS REPORTING

Under the input line there is a status bar. You can see there the status of the currently executed command, the warnings and errors and you will be prompted if a decision has to be taken.
