    i want to see the difference between the present file version and 5 versions back of the same file

      Just do a ‘git diff HEAD@{1} filename’ where {1} = {}. You can get the hash by typing ‘git log’ and going back as many commits as you need. Of course filename just refers the the file you want to see.
