Pretty-print the contents of the commit logs in a given format,
where '<format>' can be one of 'oneline', 'short', 'medium',
'full', 'fuller', 'email', 'raw' and 'format:<string>'.
When omitted, the format defaults to 'medium'.
Note: you can specify the default pretty format in the repository
configuration (see linkgit:git-config[1]).
Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal commit object
name, show only handful hexdigits prefix. Non default number of
digits can be specified with "--abbrev=<n>" (which also modifies
diff output, if it is displayed).
This should make "--pretty=oneline" a whole lot more readable for
people using 80-column terminals.
The commit objects record the encoding used for the log message
in their encoding header; this option can be used to tell the
command to re-code the commit log message in the encoding
preferred by the user. For non plumbing commands this
defaults to UTF-8.
