git ls-tree [-d] [-r] [-t] [-l] [-z] [--name-only] [--name-status] [--full-name] [--full-tree] [--abbrev[=<n>]] <tree-ish> [<path>...]
•the behaviour is slightly different from that of "/bin/ls" in that the <path> denotes just a list of patterns to match, e.g. so specifying directory name (without -r) will behave differently, and order of the arguments does not matter.
•the behaviour is similar to that of "/bin/ls" in that the <path> is taken as relative to the current working directory. E.g. when you are in a directory sub that has a directory dir, you can run git ls-tree -r HEAD dir to list the contents of the tree (that is sub/dir in HEAD). You don’t want to give a tree that is not at the root level (e.g. git ls-tree -r HEAD:sub dir) in this case, as that would result in asking for sub/sub/dir in the HEAD commit. However, the current working directory can be ignored by passing --full-tree option.
Id of a tree-ish.-d
Show only the named tree entry itself, not its children.-r
Recurse into sub-trees.-t
Show tree entries even when going to recurse them. Has no effect if -r was not passed. -d implies -t.-l, --long
Show object size of blob (file) entries.-z
\0 line termination on output and do not quote filenames. See OUTPUT FORMAT below for more information.--name-only, --name-status
List only filenames (instead of the "long" output), one per line.--abbrev[=<n>]
Instead of showing the full 40-byte hexadecimal object lines, show only a partial prefix. Non default number of digits can be specified with --abbrev=<n>.--full-name
Instead of showing the path names relative to the current working directory, show the full path names.--full-tree
Do not limit the listing to the current working directory. Implies --full-name.[<path>...]
When paths are given, show them (note that this isn’t really raw pathnames, but rather a list of patterns to match). Otherwise implicitly uses the root level of the tree as the sole path argument.
