GIT-WRITE-TREE(1) Git Manual GIT-WRITE-TREE(1)
git-write-tree - Create a tree object from the current index
git write-tree [--missing-ok] [--prefix=<prefix>/]
Creates a tree object using the current index. The name of the new tree
object is printed to standard output.
The index must be in a fully merged state.
Conceptually, git write-tree sync()s the current index contents into a
set of tree files. In order to have that match what is actually in your
directory right now, you need to have done a git update-index phase
before you did the git write-tree.
Normally git write-tree ensures that the objects referenced by the
directory exist in the object database. This option disables this
Writes a tree object that represents a subdirectory <prefix>. This
can be used to write the tree object for a subproject that is in
the named subdirectory.
