display a git blob, reconstructing from mail if necessary


lei blob [Options] OID


Display a git blob.  The blob may correspond to a message from the local store, any local external, or blobs associated with a project git repository (if run from a git (working) directory). For blobs which do not exist, it will attempt to recreate the blob using patch emails.



Specify an additional .git/ directory to scan.  This option may be given multiple times.

Default: the output of git rev-parse --git-dir


Do not look in the git repository of the current working directory.


Do not look in mail storage for OID.  This is implied by --oid-a, --path-a, and --path-b.


Provide pre-image object ID as a hint for reconstructing OID.


Provide pre-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing OID.


Provide post-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing OID.


Provide more feedback on stderr.

The following options are also supported and are described in lei-q(1).


Remote externals only get queried when the blob needs to be reconstructed from patch emails.
