What does these command line means when pushing code to remote repo?


Dear All,

I found the command line executed on sourcetree when push code to remote are as follows,

could anyone help to explain what do these arguments mean?

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false --no-optional-locks push -v --tags --set-upstream origin develop:develop-mars


Thanks and Best regards,

The `-c` options are to override the values in the config for this command alone.

Look for those options in the documentation (git-config) and you'll find your answers :

- `diff.mnemonicprefix`

- `core.quotepath`

The `--no-optimal-locks` is there: 

`push` and everything that is behind can be explained reading this documentation (git-push).

A good way to improve your knowledge is to look directly in the documentation of the tools ahead. It's not so difficult to find ;-)

Happy learning.

Dear Arnaud JOLLY,


Thanks for your great helps and detailed explanations.


Best regards,
