Using git to stage files in hunks
Nov 16, 2012
git add -p if you make multiple, unrelated changes to a single file.
Say that I make more than one change on a file in different sections. Rather than using
git add to commit the entire file I use
git add -p to stage sections of the file and then make multiple commits.
luk3@mac: $ git add -p diff --git a/_layouts/default.html b/_layouts/default.html index ef67e76..ca34967 100644 --- a/_layouts/default.html +++ b/_layouts/default.html @@ -32,7 +32,10 @@ <section> ... Stage this hunk [y,n,q,a,d,/,e,?]?
