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.)

EXAMPLES

           $ git var GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT

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).
