NAME git-var - Show a git logical variable

SYNOPSIS git var ( -l | <variable> )

DESCRIPTION Prints a git logical variable.

OPTIONS -l Cause the logical variables to be listed. In addition, all the variables of the git configuration file .git/config are listed as well. (However, the configuration variables listing functionality is deprecated in favor of git config -l.)

VARIABLES GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT The author of a piece of code.

GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT The person who put a piece of code into git.

GIT_EDITOR Text editor for use by git commands. The value is meant to be interpreted by the shell when it is used. Examples: ~/bin/vi, $SOME_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE, "C:Program Filesmim.exe" --nofork. The order of preference is the $GIT_EDITOR environment variable, then core.editor configuration, then $VISUAL, then $EDITOR, and then finally vi.

GIT_PAGER Text viewer for use by git commands (e.g., less). The value is meant to be interpreted by the shell. The order of preference is the $GIT_PAGER environment variable, then core.pager configuration, then $PAGER, and then finally less.

Your parents must have hated you! The passwd(5) gecos field is longer than a giant static buffer.

Your sysadmin must hate you! The passwd(5) name field is longer than a giant static buffer.
