Print a git log (in reverse order) giving a reference relative to HEAD.

HEAD (the current revision) can also be referred to as HEAD~0

The previous revision is HEAD~1 then HEAD~2 etc.

.

Add line numbers to the git output, starting at zero:

... | nl -v0 | ...

.

Insert the string 'HEAD~' before the number using sed:

... | sed 's/^ \+/&HEAD~/'

.

Thanks to bartonski for the idea :-)

o=0; git log --oneline | while read l; do printf "%+9s %s\n" "HEAD~${o}" "$l"; o=$(($o+1)); done | less

Normally, searching git log comments is case sensitive. The -i luckily applies to the --grep switch.
