NAME         top

       git-mktree - Build a tree-object from ls-tree formatted text

SYNOPSIS         top

       git mktree [-z] [--missing] [--batch]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Reads standard input in non-recursive ls-tree output format, and
       creates a tree object. The order of the tree entries is normalised by
       mktree so pre-sorting the input is not required. The object name of
       the tree object built is written to the standard output.

OPTIONS         top

           Read the NUL-terminated ls-tree -z output instead.

           Allow missing objects. The default behaviour (without this
           option) is to verify that each tree entry’s sha1 identifies an
           existing object. This option has no effect on the treatment of
           gitlink entries (aka "submodules") which are always allowed to be

           Allow building of more than one tree object before exiting. Each
           tree is separated by as single blank line. The final new-line is
           optional. Note - if the -z option is used, lines are terminated
           with NUL.
