NAME
       git-annex-calckey - calulate key for 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.
