I accidentally added a bunch of cache files into the repo. I've now removed them and now want to commit the change to the repo.
So I tried to do the following, but git doesn't seem to like it:
git diff --name-only | grep '/cache/' | xargs git add
warning: You ran 'git add' with neither '-A (--all)' or '--ignore-removal', whose behaviour will change in Git 2.0 with respect to paths you removed. Paths like 'sym_online_app_bs3/cache/demo_cust_can_create_tickets' that are removed from your working tree are ignored with this version of Git. * 'git add --ignore-removal <pathspec>', which is the current default, ignores paths you removed from your working tree. * 'git add --all <pathspec>' will let you also record the removals. Run 'git status' to check the paths you removed from your working tree.
I don't want to
git add --all because there are some other changes I don't want committed yet.
Has anybody had to do something similar and have a solution to this.
I'm on: Darwin Kernel Version 13.4.0 (Mac OSX 10.9.5)
Git interactive is an acceptable alternative for now. But would be interested to find out how to go down the xargs route.
