Rename Operation - Git

Till now, both Tom and Jerry were using manual commands to compile their project. Now, Jerry decides to create Makefile for their project and also give a proper name to the file “string.c”.

 

[jerry@CentOS project]$ pwd

/home/jerry/jerry_repo/project

 

[jerry@CentOS project]$ ls

README src

 

[jerry@CentOS project]$ cd src/

 

[jerry@CentOS src]$ git add Makefile

 

[jerry@CentOS src]$ git mv string.c string_operations.c

 

[jerry@CentOS src]$ git status -s

A Makefile

R string.c ?> string_operations.c

 

Git is showing R before file name to indicate that the file has been renamed.

For commit operation, Jerry used -a flag, that makes git commit automatically detect the modified files.

 

 

[jerry@CentOS src]$ git commit -a -m 'Added Makefile and renamed strings.c to

string_operations.c '

 

[master 94f7b26] Added Makefile and renamed strings.c to string_operations.c

1 files changed, 0 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)

create mode 100644 src/Makefile

rename src/{string.c => string_operations.c} (100%)

 

After commit, he pushes his changes to the repository.

 

[jerry@CentOS src]$ git push origin master

 

The above command will produce the following result:

 

Counting objects: 6, done.

Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done.

Writing objects: 100% (4/4), 396 bytes, done.

Total 4 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)

To gituser@git.server.com:project.git

7d9ea97..94f7b26 master ?> master

 

Now, other developers can view these modifications by updating their local repository.
