    Command:

    git-show-ref

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           git show-ref [-q|--quiet] [--verify] [--head] [-d|--dereference]
                        [-s|--hash[=<n>]] [--abbrev[=<n>]] [--tags]
                        [--heads] [--] [<pattern>...]
           git show-ref --exclude-existing[=<pattern>] < ref-list
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Displays references available in a local repository along with the
           associated commit IDs. Results can be filtered using a pattern and tags
           can be dereferenced into object IDs. Additionally, it can be used to
           test whether a particular ref exists.
    
           The --exclude-existing form is a filter that does the inverse, it shows
           the refs from stdin that don't exist in the local repository.
    
           Use of this utility is encouraged in favor of directly accessing files
           under the .git directory.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           --head
               Show the HEAD reference.
    
           --tags, --heads
               Limit to only "refs/heads" and "refs/tags", respectively. These
               options are not mutually exclusive; when given both, references
               stored in "refs/heads" and "refs/tags" are displayed.
    
           -d, --dereference
               Dereference tags into object IDs as well. They will be shown with
               "^{}" appended.
    
           -s, --hash[=<n>]
               Only show the SHA1 hash, not the reference name. When combined with
               --dereference the dereferenced tag will still be shown after the
               SHA1.
    
           --verify
               Enable stricter reference checking by requiring an exact ref path.
               Aside from returning an error code of 1, it will also print an
               error message if --quiet was not specified.
    
           --abbrev[=<n>]
               Abbreviate the object name. When using --hash, you do not have to
               say --hash --abbrev; --hash=n would do.
    
           -q, --quiet
               Do not print any results to stdout. When combined with --verify
               this can be used to silently check if a reference exists.
    
           --exclude-existing[=<pattern>]
               Make git show-ref act as a filter that reads refs from stdin of the
               832e76a9899f560a90ffd62ae2ce83bbeff58f54 HEAD
               832e76a9899f560a90ffd62ae2ce83bbeff58f54 refs/heads/master
               832e76a9899f560a90ffd62ae2ce83bbeff58f54 refs/heads/origin
               3521017556c5de4159da4615a39fa4d5d2c279b5 refs/tags/v0.99.9c
               6ddc0964034342519a87fe013781abf31c6db6ad refs/tags/v0.99.9c^{}
               055e4ae3ae6eb344cbabf2a5256a49ea66040131 refs/tags/v1.0rc4
               423325a2d24638ddcc82ce47be5e40be550f4507 refs/tags/v1.0rc4^{}
               ...
    
           When using --hash (and not --dereference) the output format is: <SHA-1
           ID>
    
               $ git show-ref --heads --hash
               2e3ba0114a1f52b47df29743d6915d056be13278
               185008ae97960c8d551adcd9e23565194651b5d1
               03adf42c988195b50e1a1935ba5fcbc39b2b029b
               ...
    
    
    

    EXAMPLE

           To show all references called "master", whether tags or heads or
           anything else, and regardless of how deep in the reference naming
           hierarchy they are, use:
    
                       git show-ref master
    
           This will show "refs/heads/master" but also
           "refs/remote/other-repo/master", if such references exists.
    
           When using the --verify flag, the command requires an exact path:
    
                       git show-ref --verify refs/heads/master
    
           will only match the exact branch called "master".
    
           If nothing matches, git show-ref will return an error code of 1, and in
           the case of verification, it will show an error message.
    
           For scripting, you can ask it to be quiet with the "--quiet" flag,
           which allows you to do things like
    
                       git show-ref --quiet --verify -- "refs/heads/$headname" ||
                               echo "$headname is not a valid branch"
    
           to check whether a particular branch exists or not (notice how we don't
           actually want to show any results, and we want to use the full refname
           for it in order to not trigger the problem with ambiguous partial
           matches).
