Hello good fellows,
I've looked to no avail for some examples of the `--index-filter`
action for `filter-branch`. It's clear from the manpage how to use it
to remove files, and I gather that something like `git ls-files |
grep ...` can be used to build a list of files to be removed. But
it's not clear how, or whether, it can be used to do other things,
like for example moving files, modifying them, or creating new ones.
Is there a list of examples somewhere, or further documentation?
Obviously it's possible to do all of those things with `--tree-
filter`, but that is a fair bit slower.
