NAME

git-lfs-clean - Git clean filter that converts large files to pointers

SYNOPSIS

git lfs clean path

DESCRIPTION

Read the contents of a large file from standard input, and write a Git LFS pointer file for that file to standard output.
Clean is typically run by Git´s clean filter, configured by the repository´s Git attributes.
Clean is not part of the user-facing Git plumbing commands. To preview the pointer of a large file as it would be generated, see the git-lfs-pointer(1) command.
