git-runstatus - A helper for git-status and git-commit
git-runstatus [--color|--nocolor] [--amend] [--verbose] [--untracked]
Examines paths in the working tree that has changes unrecorded to the index file, and changes between the index file and the current HEAD commit. The former paths are what you could commit by running git add (or git rm if you are deleting) before running git commit, and the latter paths are what you would commit by running git commit.
If there is no path that is different between the index file and the current HEAD commit, the command exits with non-zero status.
Note that this is not the user level command you would want to run from the command line. Use git-status instead.
Show colored status, highlighting modified file names.
Turn off coloring.
Show status based on HEAD^1, not HEAD, i.e. show what git-commit --amend would do.
Show unified diff of all file changes.
Show files in untracked directories, too. Without this option only its name and a trailing slash are displayed for each untracked directory.
The output from this command is designed to be used as a commit template comments, and all the output lines are prefixed with #.
