Allow pack header preprocessing before unpack-objects/index-pack.
Some applications which invoke unpack-objects or index-pack --stdin may want to examine the pack header to determine the number of objects contained in the pack and use that value to determine which executable to invoke to handle the rest of the pack stream. However if the caller consumes the pack header from the input stream then its no longer available for unpack-objects or index-pack --stdin, both of which need the version and object count to process the stream. This change introduces --pack_header=ver,cnt as a command line option that the caller can supply to indicate it has already consumed the pack header and what version and object count were found in that header. As this option is only meant for low level applications such as receive-pack we are not documenting it at this time. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
