git‐annex‐lookupkey − looks up key used for file

git annex lookupkey [file ...]

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


     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.
