should (HEAD->master) message be shown at the top with latest commit from
git log --oneline command,
does that message only tell on which branch Im currently at?
Hello there , I have just begun studing git versrion control, I watched some old tutorials about git basics and there I didn’t see any message like that while showing commits list (when using git log), now when I made several commits I saw that (HEAD -> master) message so I was curious what that meant and as I learned HEAD is just something like ref to another ref which is applied to the latest commit in branch, am I right? so what is the point of showing that message, just to tell on which branch Im currently at?
I achieved hiding that message by using decorate=no with git log command, could I make that default for git log?, as I saw in documentation git log uses decoration=short by default and there is mentioned that decorate=short hides refs, ( if I understood it correctly) but it didn’t do that. why?
If anyone wants to know what the hell HEAD tag is and why does it point to the master just look this up: https://people.gnome.org/~federico/news-2008-11.html
any comments would be appreciated I’m just reeal beginner at the moment
