Subject: Find commit that referenced a blob first
Date: Thu, 19 Jul 2018 23:02:47 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I have a blob hash and I would like to know what commit referenced 
this blob first in a given Git repo.

I could iterate through all commits sorted by date (or generation 
number) and then recursively search in the referenced trees until 
I find my blob. I wonder, is this the most efficient way to solve 
my problem? Is there some trick/existing Git command that would 
perform this search more efficiently for large repos?

Thank you,
