Git command to show files changed in a commit

How to see exactly which files have changed in a single commit

Recently I wanted to pull a list of changed files from an older commit from the command line.

Turns out (like most things in Git) this is very easy to do.

git show --name-only {commit}

You can replace {commit} with the SHA1 you want to retrieve, or things like HEAD or HEAD^^
