       git-hash-object - Compute object	ID and optionally creates a blob from
       a file

       git hash-object [-t <type>] [-w]	[--path=<file>|--no-filters] [--stdin [--literally]] [--] <file>...
       git hash-object [-t <type>] [-w]	--stdin-paths [--no-filters]

       Computes	the object ID value for	an object with specified type with the
       contents	of the named file (which can be	outside	of the work tree), and
       optionally writes the resulting object into the object database.
       Reports its object ID to	its standard output. When <type> is not
       specified, it defaults to "blob".

       -t <type>
	   Specify the type (default: "blob").

	   Actually write the object into the object database.

	   Read	the object from	standard input instead of from a file.

	   Read	file names from	the standard input, one	per line, instead of
	   from	the command-line.

	   Hash	object as it were located at the given path. The location of
	   file	does not directly influence on the hash	value, but path	is
	   used	to determine what Git filters should be	applied	to the object
	   before it can be placed to the object database, and,	as result of
	   applying filters, the actual	blob put into the object database may
	   differ from the given file. This option is mainly useful for
	   hashing temporary files located outside of the working directory or
	   files read from stdin.

	   Hash	the contents as	is, ignoring any input filter that would have
	   been	chosen by the attributes mechanism, including the end-of-line
	   conversion. If the file is read from	standard input then this is
	   always implied, unless the --path option is given.

	   Allow --stdin to hash any garbage into a loose object which might
	   not otherwise pass standard object parsing or git-fsck checks.
	   Useful for stress-testing Git itself	or reproducing characteristics
	   of corrupt or bogus objects encountered in the wild.

       Part of the git(1) suite
