Revert changes to previous version in git

As a developer, we tends to make mistakes when we are committing our code to the repository.When we are using git, its too ease to revert.


1.Revert changes to particular file after committing
$ git checkout master
$ git add filename
$ git commit filename

As per the scenario, we have committed locally.Now we want to revert the local changes and replace with the latest from the repository.

git checkout filename
This will replace the local file with the latest from the repository.
