NAME

SYNOPSIS

git var ( -l | <variable> )
 

DESCRIPTION

OPTIONS

-l

EXAMPLE

$ git var GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT
Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@lnxi.com> 1121223278 -0600

VARIABLES

GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT
The author of a piece of code.
GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT
The person who put a piece of code into Git.
GIT_EDITOR
Text editor for use by Git commands. The value is meant to be interpreted by the shell when it is used. Examples: ~/bin/vi, $SOME_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE, "C:\Program Files\Vim\gvim.exe" --nofork. The order of preference is the $GIT_EDITOR environment variable, then core.editor configuration, then $VISUAL, then $EDITOR, and then the default chosen at compile time, which is usually vi.
GIT_PAGER
Text viewer for use by Git commands (e.g., less). The value is meant to be interpreted by the shell. The order of preference is the $GIT_PAGER environment variable, then core.pager configuration, then $PAGER, and then the default chosen at compile time (usually less).
