NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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 remote
       Git server (git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack or git-upload-achive). 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 user
       in the URL in case that URL is displayed in some context.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       GIT_TRANSLOOP_DEBUG
           If set, prints debugging information about various reads/writes.

EXAMPLES

       git fetch fd::17 master
           Fetch master, using file descriptor #17 to communicate with git-upload-pack.

       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 same service.

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