git-58c8dd217384b8d1a464a55a98c665ed108c6b15.tar.bz2 fix documentation of hash_object
The documentation of hash_object incorrectly states that it accepts a file handle -- in fact it doesn't, and there is even a TODO comment for this. This fixes the documentation. Signed-off-by: Lea Wiemann <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
