The git(1) manual page says:

See gittutorial(7) to get started, then see Everyday Git[1]
for a useful minimum set of commands. The Git User’s Manual[2] 
has a more in-depth introduction.

Where is either "Everyday Git[1]" or "Git User's Manual[2]"?


The links can be found at the very end of the man page:

    1. Git User’s Manual

    2. Git concepts chapter of the user-manual

    3. howto

    4. Git API documentation

    5. git@vger.kernel.org

The [number] notation usually means that it references some document, and at the end of (page,document,...) you can find location of these documents. I encourage you to look around more before asking the question ;)

  • Thank you so much for both your answer and patient advice! I didn't understand this notation and just can't express my foolish! – Charlie Forthmount Aug 9 '16 at 9:28
