git-remote-fd

Reflect smart transport stream back to caller

SYNOPSIS


"fd::<infd>[,<outfd>][/<anything>]" (as URL)

DESCRIPTION


This helper uses specified file descriptors to connect to a remote Git server . This is not meant for end users but for programs and scripts calling git fetch, push or archive .
If only <infd> is given, it is assumed to be a bidirectional socket connected to remote Git server (git -upload -pack, git -receive -pack or git -upload -archive) . If both <infd> and <outfd> are given, they are assumed to be pipes connected to a remote Git server (<infd> being the inbound pipe and <outfd> being the outbound pipe .
It is assumed that any handshaking procedures have already been completed (such as sending service request for git://) before this helper is started .
<anything> can be any string . It is ignored . It is meant for providing information to user in the URL in case that URL is displayed in some context .

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

GIT_TRANSLOOP_DEBUG If set, prints debugging information about various reads/writes .
