NAME

       git-write-tree - Create a tree object from the current index

SYNOPSIS

       git write-tree [--missing-ok] [--prefix=<prefix>/]

DESCRIPTION

       Creates a tree object using the current index. The name of the new tree object is printed
       to standard output.

       The index must be in a fully merged state.

       Conceptually, git write-tree sync()s the current index contents into a set of tree files.
       In order to have that match what is actually in your directory right now, you need to have
       done a git update-index phase before you did the git write-tree.

OPTIONS

       --missing-ok
           Normally git write-tree ensures that the objects referenced by the directory exist in
           the object database. This option disables this check.

       --prefix=<prefix>/
           Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory <prefix>. This can be used to
           write the tree object for a subproject that is in the named subdirectory.
