NAME
       gitk - The Git repository browser

SYNOPSIS
       gitk [<option>...] [<revs>] [--] [<path>...]

DESCRIPTION
       Displays changes in a repository or a selected set of commits. This includes visualizing
       the commit graph, showing information related to each commit, and the files in the trees
       of each revision.

       Historically, gitk was the first repository browser. It's written in tcl/tk and started
       off in a separate repository but was later merged into the main Git repository.

OPTIONS
       To control which revisions to show, the command takes options applicable to the git
       rev-list command (see git-rev-list(1)). This manual page describes only the most
       frequently used options.

       -n <number>, --max-count=<number>
	   Limits the number of commits to show.

       --since=<date>
	   Show commits more recent than a specific date.

       --until=<date>
	   Show commits older than a specific date.

       --all
	   Show all branches.

       --merge
	   After an attempt to merge stops with conflicts, show the commits on the history
	   between two branches (i.e. the HEAD and the MERGE_HEAD) that modify the conflicted
	   files and do not exist on all the heads being merged.

       --argscmd=<command>
	   Command to be run each time gitk has to determine the list of <revs> to show. The
	   command is expected to print on its standard output a list of additional revs to be
	   shown, one per line. Use this instead of explicitly specifying <revs> if the set of
	   commits to show may vary between refreshes.

       --select-commit=<ref>
	   Automatically select the specified commit after loading the graph. Default behavior is
	   equivalent to specifying --select-commit=HEAD.

       <revs>
	   Limit the revisions to show. This can be either a single revision meaning show from
	   the given revision and back, or it can be a range in the form "<from>..<to>" to show
	   all revisions between <from> and back to <to>. Note, more advanced revision selection
	   can be applied. For a more complete list of ways to spell object names, see
	   gitrevisions(7).

       <path>...
	   Limit commits to the ones touching files in the given paths. Note, to avoid ambiguity
	   with respect to revision names use "--" to separate the paths from any preceding
	   options.

EXAMPLES
       gitk v2.6.12.. include/scsi drivers/scsi
	   Show the changes since version v2.6.12 that changed any file in the include/scsi or
	   drivers/scsi subdirectories

       gitk --since="2 weeks ago" -- gitk
	   Show the changes during the last two weeks to the file gitk. The "--" is necessary to
	   avoid confusion with the branch named gitk

       gitk --max-count=100 --all -- Makefile
	   Show at most 100 changes made to the file Makefile. Instead of only looking for
	   changes in the current branch look in all branches.

FILES
       Gitk creates the .gitk file in your $HOME directory to store preferences such as display
       options, font, and colors.
