I installed Xcode and think it also installed Git. I have decide to use Git and first need to check if it's there before trying to install it.

Could someone tell me? And how to check the version installed?

Thanks.

open a terminal and type: git --version
You should see something like this Version may vary: git version 1.7.4.4

Thanks. But I am thinking Git is too complicated to learn. I see the benefits, but I have worked with SubVersion and actually like it. I wanted to be up and running with source code management in a few hours. Git looks like it would take me much longer.
