Referring to the previous/next commit in git?
I have seen git commands use a syntax such as
HEAD~, but I haven't been able to find this syntax in the Git Reference Manual.
Here is what I have understood:
<commit>~<n> refers to the commit <n> steps earlier than <commit> (where <n> is an integer number), and
commit~ simply means the same and that <n> implicitly is one.
Now, is this correct? In that case, does this always work? What if <commit> is the result of a merge between two branches, which commit will then
<commit>~ refer to? Is there some corresponding syntax for referring to the next commit or the commit <n> steps later?
