Git show whole file changes

Is there a way to get the git show command to show the whole contents of a file when viewing a commit? For example: if it currently show something like

foo.cpp

+++ int main() {
+++    std::cout << "HELLO" << std::endl;
+++ }

I would want the output to say:

  • Git's blob data and diff information
  • Git diff --stat explanation
  • Apply a commit chunk by chunk
  • git diff does not create temp files
  • How to get diff working like git-diff?
  • Diff branches in Atlassian Stash
  • foo.cpp
    
    #include <stdio> //assuming this was from an earlier commit
    
    +++ int main() {
    +++    std::cout << "HELLO" << std::endl;
    +++ }
    

    Is there a simple way to do this?

  • Git - only push up the most recent commit to github
  • git accuses that whole file was changed
  • jenkins pipeline cannot check code into git
  • Under what exact conditions does a patch fail to apply?
  • git still untracked after add
  • Get Multiple line commit message in jenkins email notification
  • One Solution collect form web for “Git show whole file changes”

    This is kind of a hack, but git show (like git diff) has the -U option that lets you specify how many lines of context to show. If you use a number that’s bigger than the region between the difference and the start or end of the file, then it’ll show the whole file. So if you use a really big number, it’ll work the way you want on (hopefully) any file you try it on:

    git show -U99999
