NAME
       git-var - Show a Git logical variable

SYNOPSIS
       git var ( -l | <variable> )

DESCRIPTION
       Prints a Git logical variable.

OPTIONS
       -l
	   Cause the logical variables to be listed. In addition, all the variables of the Git
	   configuration file .git/config are listed as well. (However, the configuration
	   variables listing functionality is deprecated in favor of git config -l.)

EXAMPLE
	   $ git var GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT
	   Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@lnxi.com> 1121223278 -0600

VARIABLES
       GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT
	   The author of a piece of code.

       GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT
	   The person who put a piece of code into Git.

       GIT_EDITOR
	   Text editor for use by Git commands. The value is meant to be interpreted by the shell
	   when it is used. Examples: ~/bin/vi, $SOME_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE, "C:\Program
	   Files\Vim\gvim.exe" --nofork. The order of preference is the $GIT_EDITOR environment
	   variable, then core.editor configuration, then $VISUAL, then $EDITOR, and then the
	   default chosen at compile time, which is usually vi.

       GIT_PAGER
	   Text viewer for use by Git commands (e.g., less). The value is meant to be interpreted
	   by the shell. The order of preference is the $GIT_PAGER environment variable, then
	   core.pager configuration, then $PAGER, and then the default chosen at compile time
	   (usually less).
