Git show (blobs, trees, tags and commits)

git show can be used to show information on blobs, trees, tags and commits.

  1. git show HEAD^ shows information about parent of HEAD.
  2. git show HEAD^3 shows information about third parent of HEAD.
  3. git show HEAD~ shows information about parent of HEAD (same as HEAD^).
  4. git show HEAD~3 shows information about "first parent of first parent of HEAD". This can also be written as HEAD^^^

Complete reference of the options can be seen here
