    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    git-cat-file

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           git cat-file (-t | -s | -e | -p | <type>) <object>
           git cat-file (--batch | --batch-check) < 
    

    DESCRIPTION

           In its first form, the command provides the content or the type of an
           object in the repository. The type is required unless -t or -p is used
           to find the object type, or -s is used to find the object size.
    
           In the second form, a list of objects (separated by linefeeds) is
           provided on stdin, and the SHA1, type, and size of each object is
           printed on stdout.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           <object>
               The name of the object to show. For a more complete list of ways to
               spell object names, see the "SPECIFYING REVISIONS" section in git-
               rev-parse(1).
    
           -t
               Instead of the content, show the object type identified by
               <object>.
    
           -s
               Instead of the content, show the object size identified by
               <object>.
    
           -e
               Suppress all output; instead exit with zero status if <object>
               exists and is a valid object.
    
           -p
               Pretty-print the contents of <object> based on its type.
    
           <type>
               Typically this matches the real type of <object> but asking for a
               type that can trivially be dereferenced from the given <object> is
               also permitted. An example is to ask for a "tree" with <object>
               being a commit object that contains it, or to ask for a "blob" with
               <object> being a tag object that points at it.
    
           --batch
               Print the SHA1, type, size, and contents of each object provided on
               stdin. May not be combined with any other options or arguments.
    
           --batch-check
               Print the SHA1, type, and size of each object provided on stdin.
               May not be combined with any other options or arguments.
    
    
    

    OUTPUT

               <sha1> SP <type> SP <size> LF
               <contents> LF
    
           If --batch-check is specified, output of the following form is printed
           for each object specified on stdin:
    
               <sha1> SP <type> SP <size> LF
    
           For both --batch and --batch-check, output of the following form is
           printed for each object specified on stdin that does not exist in the
           repository:
    
               <object> SP missing LF
