SYNOPSIS

git-applypatch <msg> <patch> <info> [<signoff>]

DESCRIPTION

This is usually not what an end user wants to run directly. See gitlink:git-am[1] instead.

Takes three files <msg>, <patch>, and <info> prepared from an e-mail message by git-mailinfo, and creates a commit. It is usually not necessary to use this command directly.

This command can run applypatch-msg, pre-applypatch, and post-applypatch hooks. See hooks for more information.
