 +===== Using "​.."​ and "​..."​ ===== 
 + 
 +==== DESCRIPTION ==== 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +git diff [<​options>​] <​commit>​ <​commit>​ [--] [<​path>​...] 
 +    This is to view the changes between two arbitrary <​commit>​. 
 + 
 +git diff [<​options>​] <​commit>​..<​commit>​ [--] [<​path>​...] 
 +    This is synonymous to the previous form. If <​commit>​ on one 
 +    side is omitted, it will have the same effect as using HEAD 
 +    instead. 
 + 
 +git diff [<​options>​] <​commit>​...<​commit>​ [--] [<​path>​...] 
 +    This form is to view the changes on the branch containing 
 +    and up to the second <​commit>,​ starting at a common 
 +    ancestor of both <​commit>​. "git diff A...B" is equivalent 
 +    to "git diff $(git merge-base A B) B". You can omit any one 
 +    of <​commit>,​ which has the same effect as using HEAD 
 +    instead. 
 +</​code>​
