For some reason, when I initially did a pull from the repository for a git project of mine, I got a ton of files in my working copy that have no discernible changes made to them but keep showing up in my unstaged changes area.

I'm using Git Gui on Windows xp, and when I go to look at the file to see what has changed. All I see is:

old mode 100755  

new mode 100644  

Does anyone know what this means?

How can I get these files out of my list of unstaged changes? (Very annoying to have to go through 100's of files, just to pick out files I've recently edited and want to commit).

Use the following method setting core.filemode to false to get rid of the issue, as shown below:

$ git config core.filemode false
