-Commit Formatting

-
-ifdef::git-rev-list[]
-Using these options, linkgit:git-rev-list[1] will act similar to the
-more specialized family of commit log tools: linkgit:git-log[1],
-linkgit:git-show[1], and linkgit:git-whatchanged[1]
-endif::git-rev-list[]
-
-include::pretty-options.txt[]
-
---relative-date::
-
-	Synonym for `--date=relative`.
-
---date=(relative|local|default|iso|rfc|short|raw)::
-
-	Only takes effect for dates shown in human-readable format, such
-	as when using "--pretty". `log.date` config variable sets a default
-	value for log command's --date option.
-+
-`--date=relative` shows dates relative to the current time,
-e.g. "2 hours ago".
-+
-`--date=local` shows timestamps in user's local timezone.
-+
-`--date=iso` (or `--date=iso8601`) shows timestamps in ISO 8601 format.
-+
-`--date=rfc` (or `--date=rfc2822`) shows timestamps in RFC 2822
-format, often found in E-mail messages.
-+
-`--date=short` shows only date but not time, in `YYYY-MM-DD` format.
-+
-`--date=raw` shows the date in the internal raw git format `%s %z` format.
-+
-`--date=default` shows timestamps in the original timezone
-(either committer's or author's).
-
-ifdef::git-rev-list[]
---header::
-
-	Print the contents of the commit in raw-format; each record is
-	separated with a NUL character.
-endif::git-rev-list[]
-
---parents::
-
-	Print also the parents of the commit (in the form "commit parent...").
-	Also enables parent rewriting, see 'History Simplification' below.
-
---children::
-
-	Print also the children of the commit (in the form "commit child...").
-	Also enables parent rewriting, see 'History Simplification' below.
-
-ifdef::git-rev-list[]
---timestamp::
-	Print the raw commit timestamp.
-endif::git-rev-list[]
-
---left-right::
-
-	Mark which side of a symmetric diff a commit is reachable from.
-	Commits from the left side are prefixed with `<` and those from
-	the right with `>`.  If combined with `--boundary`, those
-	commits are prefixed with `-`.
-+
-For example, if you have this topology:
-+
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-             y---b---b  branch B
-            / \ /
-           /   .
-          /   / \
-         o---x---a---a  branch A
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-+
-you would get an output like this:
-+
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-	$ git rev-list --left-right --boundary --pretty=oneline A...B
-
-	>bbbbbbb... 3rd on b
-	>bbbbbbb... 2nd on b
-	<aaaaaaa... 3rd on a
-	<aaaaaaa... 2nd on a
-	-yyyyyyy... 1st on b
-	-xxxxxxx... 1st on a
------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
---graph::
-
-	Draw a text-based graphical representation of the commit history
-	on the left hand side of the output.  This may cause extra lines
-	to be printed in between commits, in order for the graph history
-	to be drawn properly.
-+
-This enables parent rewriting, see 'History Simplification' below.
-+
-This implies the '--topo-order' option by default, but the
-'--date-order' option may also be specified.
-
-ifdef::git-rev-list[]
---count::
-	Print a number stating how many commits would have been
-	listed, and suppress all other output.  When used together
-	with '--left-right', instead print the counts for left and
-	right commits, separated by a tab.
-endif::git-rev-list[]

-Diff Formatting
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-Below are listed options that control the formatting of diff output.
-Some of them are specific to linkgit:git-rev-list[1], however other diff
-options may be given. See linkgit:git-diff-files[1] for more options.
-
--c::
-
-	With this option, diff output for a merge commit
-	shows the differences from each of the parents to the merge result
-	simultaneously instead of showing pairwise diff between a parent
-	and the result one at a time. Furthermore, it lists only files
-	which were modified from all parents.
-
---cc::
-
-	This flag implies the '-c' options and further compresses the
-	patch output by omitting uninteresting hunks whose contents in
-	the parents have only two variants and the merge result picks
-	one of them without modification.
-
--m::
-
-	This flag makes the merge commits show the full diff like
-	regular commits; for each merge parent, a separate log entry
-	and diff is generated. An exception is that only diff against
-	the first parent is shown when '--first-parent' option is given;
-	in that case, the output represents the changes the merge
-	brought _into_ the then-current branch.
-
--r::
-
-	Show recursive diffs.
-
--t::
-
-	Show the tree objects in the diff output. This implies '-r'.
-
--s::
-	Suppress diff output.
-endif::git-rev-list[]

 Commit Limiting
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 Besides specifying a range of commits that should be listed using the
 special notations explained in the description, additional commit
-limiting may be applied.
+limiting may be applied. Note that they are applied before commit
+ordering and formatting options, such as '--reverse'.
 
 --
 
 --do-walk::
 
 	Overrides a previous --no-walk.
