11 'git-peek-remote' [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory>
12
13 DESCRIPTION
14 -----------
15 Lists the references the remote repository has, and optionally
16 stores them in the local repository under the same name.
17
18 OPTIONS
19 -------
20 --exec=<git-upload-pack>::
21 Use this to specify the path to 'git-upload-pack' on the
22 remote side, if it is not found on your $PATH. Some
23 installations of sshd ignores the user's environment
24 setup scripts for login shells (e.g. .bash_profile) and
25 your privately installed git may not be found on the system
26 default $PATH. Another workaround suggested is to set
27 up your $PATH in ".bashrc", but this flag is for people
28 who do not want to pay the overhead for non-interactive
29 shells, but prefer having a lean .bashrc file (they set most of
30 the things up in .bash_profile).
31
32 <host>::
33 A remote host that houses the repository. When this
34 part is specified, 'git-upload-pack' is invoked via
35 ssh.
36
37 <directory>::
38 The repository to sync from.
