git-ls-tree - List the contents of a tree object
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
Lists the contents of a given tree object, like what "/bin/ls -a" does in the current working directory. Note that:
.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .
2.3 . the behaviour is slightly different from that of "/bin/ls" in that the paths denote just a list of patterns to match, e.g. so specifying directory name (without -r) will behave differently, and order of the arguments does not matter.
.ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .
2.3 . the behaviour is similar to that of "/bin/ls" in that the paths is taken as relative to the current working directory. E.g. when you are in a directory sub that has a directory dir, you can run git ls-tree -r HEAD dir to list the contents of the tree (that is sub/dir in HEAD). You don(cqt want to give a tree that is not at the root level (e.g. git ls-tree -r HEAD:sub dir) in this case, as that would result in asking for sub/sub/dir in the HEAD commit. However, the current working directory can be ignored by passing --full-tree option.
4. OPTIONS ▲
Id of a tree-ish.
Show only the named tree entry itself, not its children.
Recurse into sub-trees.
Show tree entries even when going to recurse them. Has no effect if -r was not passed. -d implies -t.
Show object size of blob (file) entries.
\0 line termination on output.
List only filenames (instead of the "long" output), one per line.
Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal object lines, show only a partial prefix. Non default number of digits can be specified with --abbrev=<n>.
Instead of showing the path names relative to the current working directory, show the full path names.
Do not limit the listing to the current working directory. Implies --full-name.
When paths are given, show them (note that this isn(cqt really raw pathnames, but rather a list of patterns to match). Otherwise implicitly uses the root level of the tree as the sole path argument.
5. OUTPUT FORMAT ▲
Unless the -z option is used, TAB, LF, and backslash characters in pathnames are represented as \t, \n, and \\, respectively. This output format is compatible with what --index-info --stdin of git update-index expects.
When the -l option is used, format changes to
Object size identified by <object> is given in bytes, and right-justified with minimum width of 7 characters. Object size is given only for blobs (file) entries; for other entries - character is used in place of size.
