A Practical Guide to Git and GitHub for Windows Users
This book is an interactive, fun and practical guide to install, configure and use Git and GitHub on the Windows platform. It will take you from Beginner to Expert level through a series of engaging exercises to help you quickly acquire the skills needed to effectively use today’s most popular version control system and open source code repository.
One page 51 you instruct your readers to input the following command “git log –oneline –decorate –author=yourname”. When I input this I substitute “yourname” with my name and get a “fatal ambiguous argument” error message. Do you know why this may be so and will it effect how I progress through the book if I ignore this command and move forward?
Do not worry, this will not affect your progress. Make sure you type double dash in front of each argument. Or you can simply type “git log”.
