GIT-TAR-TREE(1)                   Git Manual                   GIT-TAR-TREE(1)

       git-tar-tree - Create a tar archive of the files in the named tree

       git tar-tree [--remote=<repo>] <tree-ish> [ <base> ]

       THIS COMMAND IS DEPRECATED. Use git archive with --format=tar option
       instead (and move the <base> argument to --prefix=base/).

       Creates a tar archive containing the tree structure for the named tree.
       When <base> is specified it is added as a leading path to the files in
       the generated tar archive.

       git tar-tree behaves differently when given a tree ID versus when given
       a commit ID or tag ID. In the first case the current time is used as
       modification time of each file in the archive. In the latter case the
       commit time as recorded in the referenced commit object is used
       instead. Additionally the commit ID is stored in a global extended pax
       header. It can be extracted using git get-tar-commit-id.

           The tree or commit to produce tar archive for. If it is the object
           name of a commit object.

           Leading path to the files in the resulting tar archive.

           Instead of making a tar archive from local repository, retrieve a
           tar archive from a remote repository.

           This variable can be used to restrict the permission bits of tar
           archive entries. The default is 0002, which turns off the world
           write bit. The special value "user" indicates that the archiving
           user’s umask will be used instead. See umask(2) for details.

       git tar-tree HEAD junk | (cd /var/tmp/ && tar xf -)
           Create a tar archive that contains the contents of the latest
           commit on the current branch, and extracts it in /var/tmp/junk

       git tar-tree v1.4.0 git-1.4.0 | gzip >git-1.4.0.tar.gz
           Create a tarball for v1.4.0 release.

       git tar-tree v1.4.0^{tree} git-1.4.0 | gzip >git-1.4.0.tar.gz
           Create a tarball for v1.4.0 release, but without a global extended
           pax header.

       git tar-tree v1.4.0 >git-1.4.0.tar
           Get a tarball v1.4.0 from

       git tar-tree HEAD:Documentation/ git-docs > git-1.4.0-docs.tar
           Put everything in the current head’s Documentation/ directory into
           git-1.4.0-docs.tar, with the prefix git-docs/.
