9 SYNOPSIS
10 --------
11 'git-hash-object' [-t <type>] [-w] [--stdin] [--] <file>...
12
13 DESCRIPTION
14 -----------
15 Computes the object ID value for an object with specified type
16 with the contents of the named file (which can be outside of the
17 work tree), and optionally writes the resulting object into the
18 object database. Reports its object ID to its standard output.
19 This is used by "git-cvsimport" to update the index
20 without modifying files in the work tree. When <type> is not
21 specified, it defaults to "blob".
