Include the latest work tree and index changes in the current patch.
This command generates a new git commit object for the patch; the old
commit is no longer visible.
Refresh will warn if the index is dirty, and require use of either
the --index or --force options to override this check. This is to
prevent accidental full refresh when only some changes were staged
using git add interative mode.
You may optionally list one or more files or directories relative to
the current working directory; if you do, only matching files will be
Behind the scenes, stg refresh first creates a new temporary patch
with your updates, and then merges that patch into the patch you
asked to have refreshed. If you asked to refresh a patch other than
the topmost patch, there can be conflicts; in that case, the
temporary patch will be left for you to take care of, for example
with stg squash.
The creation of the temporary patch is recorded in a separate entry
in the patch stack log; this means that one undo step will undo the
merge between the other patch and the temp patch, and two undo steps
will additionally get rid of the temp patch.
Only update the current patch files.
Instead of setting the patch top to the current contents of the
worktree, set it to the current contents of the index.
Instead of warning the user when some work has already been
staged (such as with git add interactive mode) force a full

-m MESSAGE, --message MESSAGE
Use MESSAGE instead of invoking the editor.
-f FILE, --file FILE
Use the contents of FILE instead of invoking the editor. (If FILE
is "-", write to stdout.)
This option bypasses the commit-msg hook.
