Since Sublime Merge (allegedly) uses real Git, I tried running
git add -i (in Cygwin terminal on Windows 10, after adding
%PROGRAMFILES%\Sublime Merge\Git\mingw64\share\bin to my system
PATH) and got the following error:
git: 'add--interactive' is not a git command. See 'get --help'.
So then I tried
git help add, which brought up another error:
fatal: 'C:/Program Files/Sublime Merge/Git/mingw64/share/doc/git-doc': not a doc umentation directory.
I checked the location specified and found that the
doc directory didn’t actually contain a
git-doc directory at all. So finally I downloaded the portable archive of Git & extracted the contents of the Documentation folder to a new
git-doc folder in the right location, but that also didn’t fix the issue.
What am I doing wrong here? I’ve done some cursory searches and learned that interactive add not existing may have to do with Git missing its Perl scripts, but why are these and the help pages even missing? Is this by design? Is the only way to solve this to install a full version of Git separately?
