git-show-index - Show packed archive index
'git show-index'
Read the `.idx` file for a Git packfile (created with
linkgit:git-pack-objects[1] or linkgit:git-index-pack[1]) from the
standard input, and dump its contents. The output consists of one object
per line, with each line containing two or three space-separated
- the first column is the offset in bytes of the object within the
corresponding packfile
- the second column is the object id of the object
- if the index version is 2 or higher, the third column contains the
CRC32 of the object data
The objects are output in the order in which they are found in the index
file, which should be (in a correctly constructed file) sorted by object
Note that you can get more information on a packfile by calling
linkgit:git-verify-pack[1]. However, as this command considers only the
index file itself, it's both faster and more flexible.
