       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:

       o   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.

       o   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.
