NAME

       git-get-tar-commit-id - Extract commit ID from an archive created using git-archive

SYNOPSIS

       git get-tar-commit-id

DESCRIPTION

       Read a tar archive created by git archive from the standard input and extract the commit
       ID stored in it. It reads only the first 1024 bytes of input, thus its runtime is not
       influenced by the size of the tar archive very much.

       If no commit ID is found, git get-tar-commit-id quietly exists with a return code of 1.
       This can happen if the archive had not been created using git archive or if the first
       parameter of git archive had been a tree ID instead of a commit ID or tag.
