git-unpack-objects

Unpack objects from a packed archive

SYNOPSIS



gitunpack -objects [ -n] [ -q] [ -r] [ --strict]

DESCRIPTION


Read a packed archive ( .pack) from the standard input, expanding the objects contained within and writing them into the repository in "loose" (one object per file) format .
Objects that already exist in the repository will not be unpacked from the packfile . Therefore, nothing will be unpacked if you use this command on a packfile that exists within the target repository .
See git-repack (1)for options to generate new packs and replace existing ones .

OPTIONS

-n Dry run . Check the pack file without actually unpacking the objects .

-q The command usually shows percentage progress . This flag suppresses it .

-r When unpacking a corrupt packfile, the command dies at the first corruption . This flag tells it to keep going and make the best effort to recover as many objects as possible .

--strict Don write objects with broken content or links .

--max -input -size=<size> Die, if the pack is larger than <size> .
