NAME

       git-ls-tree - List the contents of a tree object

SYNOPSIS

       git ls-tree [-d] [-r] [-t] [-l] [-z]
                   [--name-only] [--name-status] [--full-name] [--full-tree] [--abbrev[=<n>]]
                   <tree-ish> [<path>...]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       <tree-ish>
           Id of a tree-ish.

       -d
           Show only the named tree entry itself, not its children.

       -r
           Recurse into sub-trees.

       -t
           Show tree entries even when going to recurse them. Has no effect if -r was not passed.
           -d implies -t.

       -l, --long
           Show object size of blob (file) entries.

       -z
           \0 line termination on output.

       --name-only, --name-status
           List only filenames (instead of the "long" output), one per line.

       --abbrev[=<n>]
           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>.

       --full-name
           Instead of showing the path names relative to the current working directory, show the
           full path names.

       --full-tree
           Do not limit the listing to the current working directory. Implies --full-name.

       [<path>...]
           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 argument.

OUTPUT FORMAT

           <mode> SP <type> SP <object> TAB <file>

       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

           <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.
