git-clone-pack(1)
=================
v0.1, July 2005
 
NAME
----
git-clone-pack - Clones a repository by receiving packed objects.
 
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-clone-pack' [-q] [--exec=<git-upload-pack>] [<host>:]<directory> [<heads>...]
 
DESCRIPTION
-----------
Clones a repository into the current repository by invoking
'git-upload-pack', possibly on the remote host via ssh, in
the named repository, and invoking 'git-unpack-objects' locally
to receive the pack.
 
OPTIONS
-------
-q::
	Pass '-q' flag to 'git-unpack-objects'; this makes the
	cloning process less verbose.
 
--exec=<git-upload-pack>::
	Use this to specify the path to 'git-upload-pack' on the
	remote side, if is not found on your $PATH.
	Installations of sshd ignores the user's environment
	setup scripts for login shells (e.g. .bash_profile) and
	your privately installed GIT may not be found on the system
	default $PATH.  Another workaround suggested is to set
	up your $PATH in ".bashrc", but this flag is for people
	who do not want to pay the overhead for non-interactive
	shells by having a lean .bashrc file (they set most of
	the things up in .bash_profile).
 
[<host>:]<directory::
	The (possibly remote) repository to clone from.
 
<heads>...::
	The heads to update.  This is relative to $GIT_DIR
	(e.g. "HEAD", "refs/heads/master").  When unspecified,
	all heads are updated to match the remote repository.
