Git diff without checkout branch
As an example:
In the kernel source code, it has a lot of tags. I can diff them, such as:
git diff v2.6.37-rc3 v2.6.38-rc4
and I get the right output.
Now I copy
.git directory to another place, and in this new .git directory, I can also use
git diff v2.6.37-rc3 v2.6.38-rc4
to get the right output.
But, I have another branch such as "mydev". I can't checkout to this mydev branch, and do the
git diff v2.6.37-rc3 v2.6.38-rc4 commmand.
How can I do it?
