NAME
       git - GNU Interactive Tools

SYNTAX
       git
       gitps [ps(1) like parameters]
       gitview filename


NOTE
       The main configuration file of the GIT package is .gitrc.TERM where
       TERM is the value of the environment variable 'TERM' e.g for Linux
       console your environment contains something like 'TERM=console' so the
       configuration file name is .gitrc.console.  You can (and should) have a
       configuration file for each terminal type you use.


DESCRIPTION
       git is a file system browser with some shell facilities which was
       designed to make your work much easier and much efficient.

       gitps is an interactive process viewer/killer. It calls internally the
       ps(1) utility so that's the reason why gitps parameters are in fact
       ps(1) ones. Running gitps it is self explanatory. Use the arrows,
       PageUp, PageDown, Home, End, ^N, ^P, ^V, ESC v to move in the list, ^L
       to refresh it and F10 or ^G to leave. You can change these keys, just
       read the sections [GITPS-Setup], [GITPS-Color], [GITPS-Monochrome] and
       [GITPS-Keys] in the configuration file .gitrc.TERM.  See also
       CONFIGURATION FILES.

       gitview is an hex/ascii file viewer. Use the arrows, PageUp, PageDown,
       Home, End, ^N, ^P, ^V, ESC v to move in the file, ^L to refresh the
       screen and F10 or ^G to leave. You can change those keys, just read the
       sections [GITVIEW-Setup], [GITVIEW-Color], [GITVIEW-Monochrome] and
       [GITVIEW-Keys] in the configuration file .gitrc.TERM.  See also
       CONFIGURATION FILES.


FILE-SYSTEM BROWSER
       git is made of two panels. The left one and the right one. Each one
       contains a file system directory. You can browse the directory tree
       with the usual cursor keys and pressing ENTER when you want to enter or
       leave a directory.  You may change the panels by pressing TAB.  See
       also BUILT-IN COMMANDS.


INPUT LINE
       Under the two panels there is a shell like input line which you can use
       to type normal shell commands. The input line supports unlimited
       characters and keeps a history of the typed commands. GIT uses the GNU
       history library for that.  See also BUILT-IN COMMANDS.


WARNINGS AND ERRORS REPORTING
       Under the input line there is a status bar. You can see there the
       status of the currently executed command, the warnings and errors and
       you will be prompted if a decision has to be taken.
