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


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


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.


Id of a tree-ish.

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

Recurse into sub-trees.

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.

\0 line termination on output.

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

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>.

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

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

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.


<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.
