git-whatchanged - Show logs with difference each commit introduces

'git whatchanged' <option>...

Shows commit logs and diff output each commit introduces.  The
command internally invokes 'git rev-list' piped to
'git diff-tree', and takes command line options for both of
these commands.

This manual page describes only the most frequently used options.

	Show textual diffs, instead of the git internal diff
	output format that is useful only to tell the changed
	paths and their nature of changes.

	Limit output to <n> commits.

	Limit output to between the two named commits (bottom
	exclusive, top inclusive).

	Show git internal diff output, but for the whole tree,
	not just the top level.

	By default, differences for merge commits are not shown.
	With this flag, show differences to that commit from all
	of its parents.
However, it is not very useful in general, although it
*is* useful on a file-by-file basis.



git whatchanged -p v2.6.12.. include/scsi drivers/scsi::

	Show as patches the commits since version 'v2.6.12' that changed
	any file in the include/scsi or drivers/scsi subdirectories

git whatchanged --since="2 weeks ago" \-- gitk::

	Show the changes during the last two weeks to the file 'gitk'.
	The "--" is necessary to avoid confusion with the *branch* named
