git-annex-calckey(1)         General Commands Manual        git-annex-calckey(1)



NAME
       git-annex-calckey - calculates the key that would be used to refer to a
       file

SYNOPSIS
       git annex calckey [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This plumbing-level command calculates the key that would be used to
       refer to a file. The file is not added to the annex by this command.  The
       key is output to stdout.

       The backend used is the one from the annex.backend configuration setting,
       which can be overridden by the --backend option.  For example, to force
       use of the SHA1 backend:

        git annex calckey --backend=SHA1 file

OPTIONS
       --backend=name

              Specifies which key-value backend to use.

       --batch
              Enable batch mode, in which a line containing the filename is read
              from stdin, the key is output to stdout (with a trailing newline),
              and repeat.

       -z     Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual
              newlines.
