git-unpack-objects(1)
=====================
NAME
----
git-unpack-objects - Unpack objects from a packed archive
SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'git unpack-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 linkgit: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't write objects with broken content or links.
--max-input-size=<size>::
Die, if the pack is larger than <size>.
