What is reverse hunk, stage hunk in Source tree?

Whenever we commit something and track it into log history, we find two options; Reverse hunk and Stage Hunk at right corner in the section which shows changes made at the code by us, of the source tree. I want to know what actions will be performed by these two (Reverse hunk and Stage Hunk ) options?

Hi @Jyoti Srivastava

 

Hunk is related to diff in git.

Reverse Hunk:

Some gui has revert changes option but that applies to the whole file.

There is an option to revert a line or hunk rather than the whole file.

You can Reverse file changes made to a file in a commit, undoing them in your working copy. This is more selective than resetting the entire file back to a previous point.


Stage Hunk:

Hunk means a piece of change in the Git world. Stage hunk means it is being added to the staging area.
