Dwarf Fortress produced this text file out of the first game I played. I have no idea why. I'm not sure if this is something I told it to create or it just created it.

A quick way to commit all modifed files that are tracked in git. I made this because I like to do many incremental commits across several files (because usually I am updating global interfaces and writing documentation as I go)
