I just want to see the files that were committed in the last commit exactly as I saw the list when I did
git commit. Unfortunately searching for
git "last commit" log
in Google gets me nowhere. And
git diff HEAD^..HEAD
is not what I need, of course, since it spews the guts of the change too.
As determined via comments, it appears that the OP is looking for
$ git log --name-status HEAD^..HEAD
This is also very close to the output you’d get from
svn status or
svn log -v, which many people coming from subversion to git are familiar with.
--name-status is the key here; as noted by other folks in this question, you can use
git log -1,
git show, and
git diff to get the same sort of output. Personally, I tend to use
git show <rev> when looking at individual revisions.
