       git-mktree - Build a tree-object from ls-tree formatted text

       git mktree [-z] [--missing] [--batch]

       Reads standard input in non-recursive ls-tree output format, and
       creates a tree object. The order of the tree entries is normalized by
       mktree so pre-sorting the input is not required. The object name of the
       tree object built is written to the standard output.

           Read the NUL-terminated ls-tree -z output instead.

           Allow missing objects. The default behaviour (without this option)
           is to verify that each tree entry's sha1 identifies an existing
           object. This option has no effect on the treatment of gitlink
           entries (aka "submodules") which are always allowed to be missing.

           Allow building of more than one tree object before exiting. Each
           tree is separated by as single blank line. The final new-line is
           optional. Note - if the -z option is used, lines are terminated
           with NUL.
