git-ls-tree - List the contents of a tree object
git ls-tree [-d] [-r] [-t] [-l] [-z]
[--name-only] [--name-status] [--full-name] [--full-tree] [--abbrev[=<n>]]
Lists the contents of a given tree object, like what "/bin/ls -a" does
in the current working directory. Note that:
•the behaviour is slightly different from that of
"/bin/ls" in that the <path> denotes 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.
•the behaviour is similar to that of
"/bin/ls" in that the <path> 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’t 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.
Id of a tree-ish.
Show only the named tree entry itself, not its
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\0 line termination on output and do not quote filenames.
See OUTPUT FORMAT below for more information.
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’t really raw pathnames, but rather a list of patterns to match).
Otherwise implicitly uses the root level of the tree as the sole path
<mode> SP <type> SP <object> TAB <file>
This output format is compatible with what --index-info
--stdin of git update-index expects.
When the -l option is used, format changes to
<mode> SP <type> SP <object> SP <object size> TAB <file>
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.
Without the -z option, pathnames with "unusual"
characters are quoted as explained for the configuration variable
core.quotePath (see git-config(1)). Using -z the
filename is output verbatim and the line is terminated by a NUL byte.
