GIT-HASH-OBJECT(1)                               Git Manual                               GIT-HASH-OBJECT(1)



NAME
       git-hash-object - Compute object ID and optionally creates a blob from a file

SYNOPSIS
       git hash-object [-t <type>] [-w] [--path=<file>|--no-filters] [--stdin] [--] <file>...
       git hash-object [-t <type>] [-w] --stdin-paths [--no-filters] < <list-of-paths>


DESCRIPTION
       Computes the object ID value for an object with specified type with the contents of the named file
       (which can be outside of the work tree), and optionally writes the resulting object into the object
       database. Reports its object ID to its standard output. This is used by git cvsimport to update the
       index without modifying files in the work tree. When <type> is not specified, it defaults to "blob".

OPTIONS
       -t <type>
           Specify the type (default: "blob").

       -w
           Actually write the object into the object database.

       --stdin
           Read the object from standard input instead of from a file.

       --stdin-paths
           Read file names from stdin instead of from the command-line.

       --path
           Hash object as it were located at the given path. The location of file does not directly
           influence on the hash value, but path is used to determine what Git filters should be applied to
           the object before it can be placed to the object database, and, as result of applying filters,
           the actual blob put into the object database may differ from the given file. This option is
           mainly useful for hashing temporary files located outside of the working directory or files read
           from stdin.

       --no-filters
           Hash the contents as is, ignoring any input filter that would have been chosen by the attributes
           mechanism, including the end-of-line conversion. If the file is read from standard input then
           this is always implied, unless the --path option is given.
