ref^ refers to the commit before
ref. What about getting the commit after
For example, if I
git checkout 12345, how do I check out the next commit?
Yes, Git's a DAG node pointer struct tree whatever. How do I find the commit after this one?
To list all the commits, starting from the current one, and then its child, and so on - basically standard git log, but going the other way in time, use something like
git log --reverse --ancestry-path 894e8b4e93d8f3^..master
where 894e8b4e93d8f3 is the first commit you want to show.
N.b. When using a DOS command prompt, you must escape the caret:
git log --reverse --ancestry-path 894e8b4e93d8f3^^..master
