<section><title>Changing Branches</title>
<para>Working with multiple branches is very easy to do with Git. The
OpenEmbedded repository holds many branches. To list all branches, use this command:
- <screen>$ git branch -a</screen>
+ <screen>$ <command>git</command> branch -a</screen>
Branch names that begin with <literal>origin/</literal> denote
branches that exist on the remote server. The name with a * in front
of it is the branch currently checked out. If you want to work with a
remote branch, you must first create a local copy of it. The following
command will create a local copy of a remote branch:
- <screen>$ git branch &lt;local_name&gt; &lt;remote_name&gt;</screen>
+ <screen>$ <command>git</command> branch &lt;local_name&gt; &lt;remote_name&gt;</screen>
To change branches, use this command:
- <screen>$ git checkout &lt;branch_name&gt;</screen>
+ <screen>$ <command>git</command> checkout &lt;branch_name&gt;</screen>
There are more complicated branch operations that can be done with git,
but those are beyond the scope of this document.</para>
