[--no-reuse-delta] [--delta-base-offset] [--non-empty]

DESCRIPTION


Reads list of objects from the standard input, and writes a packed archive with specified
base-name, or to the standard output.

A packed archive is an efficient way to transfer a set of objects between two repositories
as well as an access efficient archival format. In a packed archive, an object is either
stored as a compressed whole or as a difference from some other object. The latter is
often called a delta.

The packed archive format (.pack) is designed to be self-contained so that it can be
unpacked without any further information. Therefore, each object that a delta depends upon
must be present within the pack.

A pack index file (.idx) is generated for fast, random access to the objects in the pack.
Placing both the index file (.idx) and the packed archive (.pack) in the pack/
subdirectory of $GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY (or any of the directories on
$GIT_ALTERNATE_OBJECT_DIRECTORIES) enables Git to read from the pack archive.

The git unpack-objects command can read the packed archive and expand the objects
contained in the pack into "one-file one-object" format; this is typically done by the
smart-pull commands when a pack is created on-the-fly for efficient network transport by
their peers.

OPTIONS


base-name
Write into a pair of files (.pack and .idx), using <base-name> to determine the name
of the created file. When this option is used, the two files are written in
<base-name>-<SHA-1>.{pack,idx} files. <SHA-1> is a hash based on the pack content and
is written to the standard output of the command.

--stdout
Write the pack contents (what would have been written to .pack file) out to the
standard output.

--revs
Read the revision arguments from the standard input, instead of individual object
names. The revision arguments are processed the same way as git rev-list with the
--objects flag uses its commit arguments to build the list of objects it outputs. The
objects on the resulting list are packed. Besides revisions, --not or --shallow
<SHA-1> lines are also accepted.

--unpacked
This implies --revs. When processing the list of revision arguments read from the
standard input, limit the objects packed to those that are not already packed.

--all
This implies --revs. In addition to the list of revision arguments read from the
standard input, pretend as if all refs under refs/ are specified to be included.

--include-tag
Include unasked-for annotated tags if the object they reference was included in the
resulting packfile. This can be useful to send new tags to native Git clients.

--window=<n>, --depth=<n>
These two options affect how the objects contained in the pack are stored using delta
compression. The objects are first internally sorted by type, size and optionally
names and compared against the other objects within --window to see if using delta
compression saves space. --depth limits the maximum delta depth; making it too deep
affects the performance on the unpacker side, because delta data needs to be applied
that many times to get to the necessary object. The default value for --window is 10
and --depth is 50.

--window-memory=<n>
This option provides an additional limit on top of --window; the window size will
dynamically scale down so as to not take up more than <n> bytes in memory. This is
useful in repositories with a mix of large and small objects to not run out of memory
with a large window, but still be able to take advantage of the large window for the
smaller objects. The size can be suffixed with "k", "m", or "g". --window-memory=0
makes memory usage unlimited, which is the default.

--max-pack-size=<n>
Maximum size of each output pack file. The size can be suffixed with "k", "m", or "g".
The minimum size allowed is limited to 1 MiB. If specified, multiple packfiles may be
created. The default is unlimited, unless the config variable pack.packSizeLimit is
set.

--honor-pack-keep
This flag causes an object already in a local pack that has a .keep file to be
ignored, even if it would have otherwise been packed.

--incremental
This flag causes an object already in a pack to be ignored even if it would have
otherwise been packed.

--local
This flag causes an object that is borrowed from an alternate object store to be
ignored even if it would have otherwise been packed.

--non-empty
Only create a packed archive if it would contain at least one object.

--progress
Progress status is reported on the standard error stream by default when it is
attached to a terminal, unless -q is specified. This flag forces progress status even
if the standard error stream is not directed to a terminal.

--all-progress
When --stdout is specified then progress report is displayed during the object count
and compression phases but inhibited during the write-out phase. The reason is that in
some cases the output stream is directly linked to another command which may wish to
display progress status of its own as it processes incoming pack data. This flag is
like --progress except that it forces progress report for the write-out phase as well
even if --stdout is used.

--all-progress-implied
This is used to imply --all-progress whenever progress display is activated. Unlike
--all-progress this flag doesn’t actually force any progress display by itself.

-q
This flag makes the command not to report its progress on the standard error stream.

--no-reuse-delta
When creating a packed archive in a repository that has existing packs, the command
reuses existing deltas. This sometimes results in a slightly suboptimal pack. This
flag tells the command not to reuse existing deltas but compute them from scratch.

--no-reuse-object
This flag tells the command not to reuse existing object data at all, including non
deltified object, forcing recompression of everything. This implies --no-reuse-delta.
Useful only in the obscure case where wholesale enforcement of a different compression
level on the packed data is desired.

--compression=<n>
Specifies compression level for newly-compressed data in the generated pack. If not
specified, pack compression level is determined first by pack.compression, then by
core.compression, and defaults to -1, the zlib default, if neither is set. Add
--no-reuse-object if you want to force a uniform compression level on all data no
matter the source.

--thin
Create a "thin" pack by omitting the common objects between a sender and a receiver in
order to reduce network transfer. This option only makes sense in conjunction with
--stdout.

Note: A thin pack violates the packed archive format by omitting required objects and
is thus unusable by Git without making it self-contained. Use git index-pack
--fix-thin (see git-index-pack(1)) to restore the self-contained property.

--shallow
Optimize a pack that will be provided to a client with a shallow repository. This
option, combined with --thin, can result in a smaller pack at the cost of speed.

--delta-base-offset
A packed archive can express the base object of a delta as either a 20-byte object
name or as an offset in the stream, but ancient versions of Git don’t understand the
latter. By default, git pack-objects only uses the former format for better
compatibility. This option allows the command to use the latter format for
compactness. Depending on the average delta chain length, this option typically
shrinks the resulting packfile by 3-5 per-cent.

Note: Porcelain commands such as git gc (see git-gc(1)), git repack (see git-
repack(1)) pass this option by default in modern Git when they put objects in your
repository into pack files. So does git bundle (see git-bundle(1)) when it creates a
bundle.

--threads=<n>
Specifies the number of threads to spawn when searching for best delta matches. This
requires that pack-objects be compiled with pthreads otherwise this option is ignored
with a warning. This is meant to reduce packing time on multiprocessor machines. The
required amount of memory for the delta search window is however multiplied by the
number of threads. Specifying 0 will cause Git to auto-detect the number of CPU’s and
set the number of threads accordingly.

--index-version=<version>[,<offset>]
This is intended to be used by the test suite only. It allows to force the version for
the generated pack index, and to force 64-bit index entries on objects located above
the given offset.

--keep-true-parents
With this option, parents that are hidden by grafts are packed nevertheless.
