14 DESCRIPTION
15 -----------
16 Reads a packed archive (.pack) from the specified file, and
17 builds a pack index file (.idx) for it. The packed archive
18 together with the pack index can then be placed in the
19 objects/pack/ directory of a git repository.

22 OPTIONS
23 -------
24 -o <index-file>::
25 Write the generated pack index into the specified
26 file. Without this option the name of pack index
27 file is constructed from the name of packed archive
28 file by replacing .pack with .idx (and the program
29 fails if the name of packed archive does not end
30 with .pack).
