I ran a git pull that ended in conflict. I resolved the conflict and everything is fine now (I used merge tool also).
When I commit the resolved file with git commit file.php -m "message" I get the error:
fatal: cannot do a partial commit during a merge.
I had the same issue before and using -a in commit worked perfectly. I think it's not the perfect way because I don't want to commit all changes. I want to commit files separately with separate comments. How can I do that? Why doesn't git allow users to commit files separately after a merge? I could not find a satisfactory answer to this problem.
