Best solution is
git diff MyRevisionNumber^! --relative > my.patch
- git diff 15dc8^! as described in the following fragment of git-rev-parse(1) manpage (or in modern git gitrevisions(7) manpage): Two other shorthands for naming a set that is formed by a commit and its parent commits exist. The r1^@ notation means all parents of r1. r1^! includes commit r1 but excludes all of its parents. This means that you can use 15dc8^! as a shorthand for 15dc8^..15dc8 anywhere in git where revisions are needed. For diff command the git diff 15dc8^..15dc8 is understood as git diff 15dc8^ 15dc8, which means the difference between parent of commit (15dc8^) and commit (15dc8). via http://stackoverflow.com/questions/436362/shorthand-for-diff-of-git-comm...
- --relative creates relative paths in patch, use it from the current working directory
- the above solution is a shortcut for
Say you have commit id 2 after commit 1 you would be able to run:
git diff 2 1 > mypatch.diff where 2 and 1 are SHA hashes.
