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



NAME
       git-annex-lookupkey - looks up key used for file

SYNOPSIS
       git annex lookupkey [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
       This plumbing-level command looks up the key used for a file in the
       index. The key is output to stdout. If there is no key (because the file
       is not present in the index, or is not a git-annex managed file), nothing
       is output, and it exits nonzero.

OPTIONS
       --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.

              Note that if there is no key corresponding to the file, an empty
              line is output to stdout instead.

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