How to make git status show only staged files

I would like to get a list of only the staged filenames. I can't find the equivalent flag for

--name-only
for the
git status
command. What is a good alternative?

The file list will be piped to
php -l
(PHP lint syntax checker).

Solution: the complete command

git diff --name-only --cached | xargs -l php -l

Answer

Use git diff --name-only (with --cached to get the staged files)
