NAME

git-create-branch - Create branches

SYNOPSIS

git-create-branch [-r|--remote [remote_name]] <branchname>

DESCRIPTION

Creates local branch named <branchname> and optionally sets up a remote tracking branch.

OPTIONS

<-r|--remote [remote_name]>
Setup a remote tracking branch using remote_name. If remote_name is not supplied, use origin by default.
<branchname>
The name of the branch to create.

EXAMPLES

$ git create-branch integration

NOTES

As of 4.4.0, the default behavior has changed. git-create-branch will no longer automatically setup a remote tracking branch unless the -r|-remote option is specified.
