  * Careful: order of argument flags does matter. For example,
- *	git-checkout-index -a -f file.c
+ *	git checkout-index -a -f file.c
  * Will first check out all files listed in the cache (but not
  * overwrite any old ones), and then force-checkout "file.c" a
  * second time (ie that one _will_ overwrite any old contents
  * with the same filename).
- * Also, just doing "git-checkout-index" does nothing. You probably
- * meant "git-checkout-index -a". And if you want to force it, you
- * want "git-checkout-index -f -a".

  * Intuitiveness is not the goal here. Repeatability is. The

  * or:
- *	find . -name '*.h' -print0 | git-checkout-index -f -z --stdin
+ *	find . -name '*.h' -print0 | git checkout-index -f -z --stdin
  * which will force all existing *.h files to be replaced with
