I already did my first commit into github. But now I have checked out the already committed repository using 'git clone <repo name>'. Now after updating my code I want to commit back the new code into my git repository. How to do that ?

If you have cloned your GitHub repo using an ssh address like, all you need to do is to:



 git push origin

would push the current branch to the repo named 'origin' (the default name when you make your clone)

See GitHub pushing help page for more.
