git‐annex‐contentlocation − looks up content for a key

git annex contentlocation [key ...]

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.


     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.
