git‐annex‐registerurl − registers an url for a key

git annex registerurl [key url]

This plumbing−level command can be used to register urls
where a key can be downloaded from.

     No verification is performed of the url’s contents.

     If no key and url pair are specified on the command
line, batch input is used, the same as if the −−batch option
were specified.

     Normally the key is a git‐annex formatted key. However,
to make it easier to use this to add urls, if the key cannot
be parsed as a key, and is a valid url, an URL key is
constructed from the url.


     In batch input mode, lines are read from stdin, and
     each line should contain a key and url, separated by a
     single space.

−z   When in batch mode, the input is delimited by nulls
     instead of the usual newlines.

     (Note that for this to be used, you have to explicitly
     enable batch mode with −−batch)
