SYNOPSIS
--------
-'git-ls-tree' [-d] [-r] [-z] <tree-ish> [paths...]
+'git-ls-tree' [-d] [-r] [-t] [-z] [--name-only] [--name-status] <tree-ish> [paths...]
DESCRIPTION
-----------
-Lists the contents of a tree object, like what "/bin/ls -a" does
-in the current working directory.
+Lists the contents of a given tree object, like what "/bin/ls -a" does
+in the current working directory. Note that the usage is subtly different,
+though - 'paths' denote just a list of patterns to match, e.g. so specifying
+directory name (without '-r') will behave differently, and order of the
+arguments does not matter.
