GIT-NAME-REV(1)			  Git Manual		       GIT-NAME-REV(1)

NAME
       git-name-rev - Find symbolic names for given revs

SYNOPSIS
       git name-rev [--tags] [--refs=<pattern>]
		      (	--all |	--stdin	| <commit-ish>... )

DESCRIPTION
       Finds symbolic names suitable for human digestion for revisions given
       in any format parsable by git rev-parse.

OPTIONS
       --tags
	   Do not use branch names, but	only tags to name the commits

       --refs=<pattern>
	   Only	use refs whose names match a given shell pattern. The pattern
	   can be one of branch	name, tag name or fully	qualified ref name. If
	   given multiple times, use refs whose	names match any	of the given
	   shell patterns. Use --no-refs to clear any previous ref patterns
	   given.

       --exclude=<pattern>
	   Do not use any ref whose name matches a given shell pattern.	The
	   pattern can be one of branch	name, tag name or fully	qualified ref
	   name. If given multiple times, a ref	will be	excluded when it
	   matches any of the given patterns. When used	together with --refs,
	   a ref will be used as a match only when it matches at least one
	   --refs pattern and does not match any --exclude patterns. Use
	   --no-exclude	to clear the list of exclude patterns.

       --all
	   List	all commits reachable from all refs

       --stdin
	   Transform stdin by substituting all the 40-character	SHA-1 hexes
	   (say	$hex) with "$hex ($rev_name)". When used with --name-only,
	   substitute with "$rev_name",	omitting $hex altogether. Intended for
	   the scripter's use.

       --name-only
	   Instead of printing both the	SHA-1 and the name, print only the
	   name. If given with --tags the usual	tag prefix of "tags/" is also
	   omitted from	the name, matching the output of git-describe more
	   closely.

       --no-undefined
	   Die with error code != 0 when a reference is	undefined, instead of
	   printing undefined.

       --always
	   Show	uniquely abbreviated commit object as fallback.

EXAMPLE
       Given a commit, find out	where it is relative to	the local refs.	Say
       somebody	wrote you about	that fantastic commit
       33db5f4d9027a10e477ccf054b2c1ab94f74c85a. Of course, you	look into the
       commit, but that	only tells you what happened, but not the context.

       Enter git name-rev:

	   % git name-rev 33db5f4d9027a10e477ccf054b2c1ab94f74c85a
	   33db5f4d9027a10e477ccf054b2c1ab94f74c85a tags/v0.99~940

       Now you are wiser, because you know that	it happened 940	revisions
       before v0.99.

       Another nice thing you can do is:

	   % git log | git name-rev --stdin
