Git rocks (27 jun 12)

I needed a 'wave front' - a document with part of one version of itself, and part of another version of itself. With Git, it's easy:

   git log
5077fe4 - My latest commit
66b8889 - A previous commit
2b2c9e5 - An even earlier commit
   git checkout 2b2c9e5
Edit a document, copying part of it into the clipboard, and close it
   git reset --hard
   git log 
No information
   git fsck --lost-found
   git reflog 
5077fe4 - My latest commit
66b8889 - A previous commit
2b2c9e5 - An even earlier commit
   git merge 5077fe4
   git log
Back to original
Open the document again, pasting the clipboard in at the relevant point

By the way - Git rocks
