Git: see what's in a stash without applying stash

Possible Duplicate:

Is it possible to preview stash contents in git?

I see here you can apply/unapply a stash and even create a new branch off of a stash. Is it possible to simply see what is inside the stash without actually applying it?

Answer Source

From the man git-stash page:

The modifications stashed away by this command can be listed with git stash list, inspected with git stash show

show [<stash>]
       Show the changes recorded in the stash as a diff between the stashed state and
       its original parent. When no <stash> is given, shows the latest one. By default,
       the command shows the diffstat, but it will accept any format known to git diff
       (e.g., git stash show -p stash@{1} to view the second most recent stash in patch

So, to view the content of the most recent stash, run

git stash show -p

To view the content of an arbitrary stash, run something like

git stash show -p stash@{1}
