How Do I run Git Log to see changes only for a specific branch?
I have a local branch tracking the remote/master branch. After running git-pull and git-log, the log will show all commits in the remote tracking branch as well as the current branch. However, because there were so many changes made to the remote branch, I need to see just the commits made to the current local branch.
What would be the git command to use to only show commits for a specific branch?
Notes: Config info:
remote = origin
merge = refs/heads/master
It usually happens to me that I make some local changes, only to discover that I made it on the wrong branch, so I need to switch branch before committing. The problem is that I cannot switch branch w
