GIT-MKTREE(1)                  Git Manual                  GIT-MKTREE(1)

NAME         top

       git-mktree - Build a tree-object from ls-tree formatted text

SYNOPSIS         top

       git mktree [-z] [--missing] [--batch]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Reads standard input in non-recursive ls-tree output format, and
       creates a tree object. The order of the tree entries is
       normalized by mktree so pre-sorting the input is not required.
       The object name of the tree object built is written to the
       standard output.

OPTIONS         top

           Read the NUL-terminated ls-tree -z output instead.

           Allow missing objects. The default behaviour (without this
           option) is to verify that each tree entry’s hash identifies
           an existing object. This option has no effect on the
           treatment of gitlink entries (aka "submodules") which are
           always allowed to be missing.

           Allow building of more than one tree object before exiting.
           Each tree is separated by a single blank line. The final
           newline is optional. Note - if the -z option is used, lines
           are terminated with NUL.
