cargo-pkgid — Print a fully qualified package specification


cargo pkgid [Options] [<SPEC>]


Given a <SPEC> argument, print out the fully qualified package id specifier.  This command will generate an error if <SPEC> is ambiguous as to which package it refers to in the dependency graph.  If no <SPEC> is given, then the pkgid for the local package is printed.

This command requires that a lockfile is available and dependencies have been fetched.
