     The gl utility is a version control system built on top of Git.

     The gl utility accepts the following commands:

     track   Start tracking changes to files.

             Stop tracking changes to files.

     status  Show the status of the repository.

     diff    Show the status of the repository.

     commit  Save changes to the local repository.  By default all tracked modified files are
             committed.  To customize the set of files to be committed use the only, exclude, and
             include flags.

             -m      Specify the commit message.

             -p, --partial
                     Interactively select segments of files to commit.

     branch  List, create, edit, or delete branches.

             -c, --create
                     Create the specified branch(es).

             -d, --delete
                     Delete the specified branch(es).

             -dp, -divergent-point
                     The commit from which to “branch out”.

             -sh, --set-head
                     Set the head of the current branch.

             -su, --set-upstream
                     Set the upstream branch of the current branch.

             -uu, --unset-upstream
                     Unset the upstream branch of the current branch.

             -v      Be verbose, output the head of each branch.

     tag     List, create, or delete tags.

             -c, --create
                     Create tag(s).

             -ci, --commit
                     Specify the commit to tag.

             -d, --delete
                     Delete tag(s).

             -r, --remote
                     List remote tags in addition to local ones.

             Checkout the committed versions of the specified files.

             -cp, --commit-point
                     The commit point to checkout the files as.

     merge   Merge the divergent changes of one branch onto another.

             -a      Abort the merge in progress.

             Mark files with conflicts as resolved.

     fuse    Fuse the divergent changes of a branch onto the current branch.  By default all
             divergent changes from the given source branch are fused.  To customize the set of
             commits to fuse use the only and exclude flags.

             -a, --abort
                     Abort the fuse in progress.

             -ip, --insertion-point
                     The divergent changes will be inserted after the specified commit.

     remote  List, create, edit, or delete remotes.

             -c, --create
                     Create a remote.

             -d, --delete
                     Delete a remote.

             Publish commits upstream.

     switch  Switch branches.

             -mo, --move-over
                     Move the uncommitted changes made to the current branch to the destination

     init    Create an empty Gitless repository or create one from an existing remote repository.

             Show the commit history.

             -b, --branch
                     The branch to show the history of.

             -c, --compact
                     Output the history in a compact format.

             -l, --limit
                     Limit the number of commits displayed.

             -v, --verbose
                     Be verbose, output the diffs of the commits.


     The following options have a similar meaning for various commands:

     -e, --exclude
             Exclude the specified files; the files must be tracked and modified.

     -h, --help
             Display a help message.

     -i, --include
             Include the specified files; the files must be untracked.

     -o, --only
             Use only the specified files; the files must be tracked and modified.


     The gl utility makes use of the following environment variables, if specified:

     EDITOR  Specify the editor to use for composing commit messages; default: “vim”.

     PAGER   Specify the pager to be used if the core.pager setting is not specified in the Git
             configuration; default: “less -r -f”.  If the pager to be executed is actually
             less(1), the -r and -f flags are appended to its arguments.


     The operation of the gl utility is influenced by the same configuration files that git(1)
     uses; see the “FILES” section of the git-config(1) documentation.

     The gl utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
