1.6 Getting Started - Getting Help
If you ever need help while using Git, there are three ways to get the manual page (manpage) help for any of the Git commands:
$ git help <verb> $ git <verb> --help $ man git-<verb>
For example, you can get the manpage help for the config command by running
$ git help config
These commands are nice because you can access them anywhere, even offline.
If the manpages and this book aren’t enough and you need in-person help, you can try the
#github channel on the Freenode IRC server (irc.freenode.net). These channels are regularly filled with hundreds of people who are all very knowledgeable about Git and are often willing to help.
