mechanism. Only useful when searching files in the current directory
with `--no-index`.
+ Recursively search in each submodule that has been initialized and
+ checked out in the repository. When used in combination with the
+ <tree> option the prefix of all submodule output will be the name of
+ the parent project's <tree> object.
+--parent-basename <basename>::
+ For internal use only. In order to produce uniform output with the
+ --recurse-submodules option, this option can be used to provide the
+ basename of a parent's <tree> object to a submodule so the submodule
+ can prefix its output with the parent's name rather than the SHA1 of
+ the submodule.
