git patch add

13 Sep 2011

My new favourite git option:

git add -p

It’s like doing an interactive add, then choosing ‘p’ for patching. From the manual:

       -p, –patch

Interactively choose hunks of patch between the index and the work tree and add them to the index. This gives the user a chance to review the difference before adding modified contents to** the index. This effectively runs add –interactive, but bypasses the initial command menu and directly jumps to the patch subcommand. See “Interactive mode” for details.
