git-whatchanged - Show logs with difference each commit introduces

'git whatchanged' <option>...


Shows commit logs and diff output each commit introduces.

New users are encouraged to use linkgit:git-log[1] instead.  The
`whatchanged` command is essentially the same as linkgit:git-log[1]
but defaults to show the raw format diff output and to skip merges.

The command is kept primarily for historical reasons; fingers of
many people who learned Git long before `git log` was invented by
reading Linux kernel mailing list are trained to type it.

`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

Part of the linkgit:git[1] suite
