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



NAME
       git-annex-examinekey - prints information from a key

SYNOPSIS
       git annex examinekey [key ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This plumbing-level command is given a key, and prints information that
       can be determined purely by looking at the key.

OPTIONS
       --format=value

              Use custom output formatting.

              The value is a format string, in which '${var}' is expanded to the
              value of a variable. To right-justify a variable with whitespace,
              use '${var;width}' ; to left-justify a variable, use
              '${var;-width}'; to escape unusual characters in a variable, use
              '${escaped_var}'

              These variables are available for use in formats: key, backend,
              bytesize, humansize, keyname, hashdirlower, hashdirmixed, mtime
              (for the mtime field of a WORM key).

              Also, '\n' is a newline, '\000' is a NULL, etc.

       --json Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that
              use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.

       --batch
              Enable batch mode, in which a line containing a key is read from
              stdin, the information about it is output to stdout, and repeat.

EXAMPLES
       The location a key's value is stored (in indirect mode) can be looked up
       by running:

        git annex examinekey $KEY
       --format='.git/annex/objects/${hashdirmixed}${key}/${key}'
