9 SYNOPSIS
10 --------
11 'git-write-tree' [--missing-ok] [--prefix=<prefix>/]
12
13 DESCRIPTION
14 -----------
15 Creates a tree object using the current index.
16
17 The index must be in a fully merged state.
18
19 Conceptually, `git-write-tree` sync()s the current index contents
20 into a set of tree files.
21 In order to have that match what is actually in your directory right
22 now, you need to have done a `git-update-index` phase before you did the
23 `git-write-tree`.

25
26 OPTIONS
27 -------
28 --missing-ok::
29 Normally `git-write-tree` ensures that the objects referenced by the
30 directory exist in the object database. This option disables this
31 check.
32
33 --prefix=<prefix>/::
34 Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory
35 `<prefix>`. This can be used to write the tree object
36 for a subproject that is in the named subdirectory.
