.SH "NAME"
git-remote-fd \- Reflect smart transport stream back to caller
.SH "SYNOPSIS"
.sp
"fd::<infd>[,<outfd>][/<anything>]" (as URL)
.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.sp
This helper uses specified file descriptors to connect to a remote Git server\&. This is not meant for end users but for programs and scripts calling git fetch, push or archive\&.
.sp
If only <infd> is given, it is assumed to be a bidirectional socket connected to remote Git server (git\-upload\-pack, git\-receive\-pack or git\-upload\-archive)\&. If both <infd> and <outfd> are given, they are assumed to be pipes connected to a remote Git server (<infd> being the inbound pipe and <outfd> being the outbound pipe\&.
.sp
It is assumed that any handshaking procedures have already been completed (such as sending service request for git://) before this helper is started\&.
.sp
<anything> can be any string\&. It is ignored\&. It is meant for providing information to user in the URL in case that URL is displayed in some context\&.
