how to view/edit a git remote branch
Hi I'm completely new to git, but I have experience with SVN. All the tutorials assume that one knows how to view/edit a file when using git, but I'm confused. I cloned a repository (from someone who needed to share code with me), then checked out several remote branches to local branches. Now I want view the code (it's Java). I can't find the files anywhere on my file system. From the command line, it only gives me the diffs for different commits. I'm not interested in that! I just want to see the latest edition of the code, preferably in Eclipse. But at this point I would be happy to open it in gedit. Help!
Thank you very much!
