NAME         top

       git-remote-fd - Reflect smart transport stream back to caller

SYNOPSIS         top

       "fd::<infd>[,<outfd>][/<anything>]" (as URL)

DESCRIPTION         top

       This helper uses specified file descriptors to connect to a
       remote Git server. This is not meant for end users but for
       programs and scripts calling git fetch, push, or archive.

       If only <infd> is given, it is assumed to be a bidirectional
       socket connected to a remote Git server (git-upload-pack,
       git-receive-pack, or git-upload-archive). If both <infd> and
       <outfd> are given, they are assumed to be pipes connected to a
       remote Git server (<infd> being the inbound pipe and <outfd>
       being the outbound pipe).

       It is assumed that any handshaking procedures have already been
       completed (such as sending service request for git://) before
       this helper is started.

       <anything> can be any string. It is ignored. It is meant for
       providing information to the user in the URL in case that URL is
       displayed in some context.


           If set, prints debugging information about various

EXAMPLES         top

       git fetch fd::17 master
           Fetch master, using file descriptor #17 to communicate with

       git fetch fd::17/foo master
           Same as above.

       git push fd::7,8 master (as URL)
           Push master, using file descriptor #7 to read data from
           git-receive-pack and file descriptor #8 to write data to the
           same service.

       git push fd::7,8/bar master
           Same as above.
