NAME

       git-unpack-objects - Unpack objects from a packed archive

SYNOPSIS

       git unpack-objects [-n] [-q] [-r] [--strict] < <pack-file>

DESCRIPTION

       Read a packed archive (.pack) from the standard input, expanding the objects contained
       within and writing them into the repository in "loose" (one object per file) format.

       Objects that already exist in the repository will not be unpacked from the pack-file.
       Therefore, nothing will be unpacked if you use this command on a pack-file that exists
       within the target repository.

       See git-repack(1) for options to generate new packs and replace existing ones.

OPTIONS

       -n
           Dry run. Check the pack file without actually unpacking the objects.

       -q
           The command usually shows percentage progress. This flag suppresses it.

       -r
           When unpacking a corrupt packfile, the command dies at the first corruption. This flag
           tells it to keep going and make the best effort to recover as many objects as
           possible.

       --strict
           Don’t write objects with broken content or links.
