The 'git' manual page on my system includes this section, which appears to be the common options for git: OPTIONS --version Prints the Git suite version that the git program came from. --help Prints the synopsis and a list of the most commonly used commands. If the option --all or -a is given then all available commands are printed. If a Git command is named this option will bring up the manual page for that command. Other options are available to control how the manual page is displayed. See git-help(1) for more information, because git --help ... is converted internally into git help .... -c <name>=<value> Pass a configuration parameter to the command. The value given will override values from configuration files. The <name> is expected in the same format as listed by git config (subkeys separated by dots). --exec-path[=<path>] Path to wherever your core Git programs are installed. This can also be controlled by setting the GIT_EXEC_PATH environment variable. If no path is given, git will print the current setting and then exit. --html-path Print the path, without trailing slash, where Git's HTML documentation is installed and exit. --man-path Print the manpath (see man(1)) for the man pages for this version of Git and exit. --info-path Print the path where the Info files documenting this version of Git are installed and exit. -p, --paginate Pipe all output into less (or if set, $PAGER) if standard output is a terminal. This overrides the pager.<cmd> configuration options (see the "Configuration Mechanism" section below). --no-pager Do not pipe Git output into a pager. --git-dir=<path> Set the path to the repository. This can also be controlled by setting the GIT_DIR environment variable. It can be an absolute path or relative path to current working directory. --work-tree=<path> Set the path to the working tree. It can be an absolute path or a path relative to the current working directory. This can also be controlled by setting the GIT_WORK_TREE environment variable and the core.worktree configuration variable (see core.worktree in git- config(1) for a more detailed discussion). --namespace=<path> Set the Git namespace. See gitnamespaces(7) for more details. Equivalent to setting the GIT_NAMESPACE environment variable. --bare Treat the repository as a bare repository. If GIT_DIR environment is not set, it is set to the current working directory. --no-replace-objects Do not use replacement refs to replace Git objects. See git- replace(1) for more information. --literal-pathspecs Treat pathspecs literally, rather than as glob patterns. This is equivalent to setting the GIT_LITERAL_PATHSPECS environment variable to 1. Dale -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
