NAME

git-annotate - Annotate file lines with commit information

SYNOPSIS

'git annotate' [options] file [revision]

DESCRIPTION

Annotates each line in the given file with information from the commit which introduced the line. Optionally annotates from a given revision.

The only difference between this command and linkgit:git-blame[1] is that they use slightly different output formats, and this command exists only for backward compatibility to support existing scripts, and provide a more familiar command name for people coming from other SCM systems.
