NAME
       git-annex-contentlocation - looks up content for a key

SYNOPSIS
       git annex contentlocation [key ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This plumbing-level command looks up filename used to store the content
       of a key. The filename is output to stdout. If the key's content is not
       present in the local repository, nothing is output, and it exits
       nonzero.

       Note that in direct mode, the file will typically be in the git work
       tree, and while its content should correspond to the key, the file
       could become modified at any time after git-annex checks it.

OPTIONS
       --batch

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

              Note that if a key's content is not present, an empty line is
              output to stdout instead.
