RE: Git checkout multiple options issue

Thanks for answer,

git checkout -f -b "branch_name"
gives me " Fatal: A branch named 'branch_name' already exists."

I understand that here the checkout is force, but not the branch creation.
The opposite option order doesn't work:

git checkout -b -f "branch_name"
gives me "Fatal:  '-f' is not a valid branch name."

Once again sorry if this is expected behavior.

[For clarity, I'm trying to move a branch and checkout it with one command.]

I think you might mean (which works on every platform I have):

git checkout -f -b "branch_name"

There is no provision for aggregating options into one. -fb (invalid) is not the same as -f -b (valid).
