     NAME
          git-var - Show a Git logical variable

     SYNOPSIS
          git var ( -l | <variable> )

     DESCRIPTION
          Prints a Git logical variable.

     OPTIONS
          -l
              Cause the logical variables to be listed. In addition,
              all the variables of the Git configuration file
              .git/config are listed as well. (However, the

     EXAMPLES
              $ git var GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT

     VARIABLES
          GIT_AUTHOR_IDENT
              The author of a piece of code.

          GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT
              The person who put a piece of code into Git.

          GIT_EDITOR
              Text editor for use by Git commands. The value is meant
              to be interpreted by the shell when it is used.
              Examples: ~/bin/vi, $SOME_ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE,
              "C:\Program Files\Vim\gvim.exe" --nofork. The order of
              preference is the $GIT_EDITOR environment variable, then
              core.editor configuration, then $VISUAL, then $EDITOR,
              and then the default chosen at compile time, which is
              usually vi. The build you are using chose editor as the
              default.

          GIT_PAGER
              Text viewer for use by Git commands (e.g., less). The
              value is meant to be interpreted by the shell. The order
              of preference is the $GIT_PAGER environment variable,
              then core.pager configuration, then $PAGER, and then the
              default chosen at compile time (usually less). The build
              you are using chose pager as the default.
