I started using git sometime back and do not fully understand the intricacies. My basic question here is to find out the difference between a git pull and git pull -- rebase, since adding the --rebase option does not seem to do something very different: just does a pull.

Please help me with understanding the difference.

To know the difference between git pull and git pull rebase then see the below which is simple and easy to understand. 

git pull = git fetch + git merge against tracking upstream branch

git pull --rebase = git fetch + git-rebase against tracking upstream branch
