+--pathspec-from-file=<file>::
+ Pathspec is passed in `<file>` instead of commandline args. If
+ `<file>` is exactly `-` then standard input is used. Pathspec
+ elements are separated by LF or CR/LF. Pathspec elements can be
+ quoted as explained for the configuration variable `core.quotePath`

+ Only meaningful with `--pathspec-from-file`. Pathspec elements are
+ separated with NUL character and all other characters are taken
+ literally (including newlines and quotes).
