9 SYNOPSIS
10 --------
11 'git-unpack-objects' [-n] [-q] <pack-file
12
13
14 DESCRIPTION
15 -----------
16 Read a packed archive (.pack) from the standard input, expanding
17 the objects contained within and writing them into the repository in
18 "loose" (one object per file) format.
19
20 Objects that already exist in the repository will *not* be unpacked
21 from the pack-file. Therefore, nothing will be unpacked if you use
22 this command on a pack-file that exists within the target repository.
23
24 Please see the `git-repack` documentation for options to generate
25 new packs and replace existing ones.
