After viewing the commit details, Jerry realizes that the string length cannot be negative, that’s why he decides to change the return type of my_strlen function.

Jerry uses the git log command to view log details.

[jerry@CentOS project]$ git log

The above command will produce the following result.

Jerry uses the git show command to view the commit details. The git show command takes SHA-1 commit ID as a parameter.

[jerry@CentOS project]$ git show cbe1249b140dad24b2c35b15cc7e26a6f02d2277

He changes the return type of the function from int to size_t. After testing the code, he reviews his changes by running the git diff command.

Git diff shows '+' sign before lines, which are newly added and '−' for deleted lines.
