Options

file matching options

The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to act on.

--key=keyname

Show where a particular git-annex key is located.

--all -A

Show whereis information for all known keys.

--branch=ref

Show whereis information for files in the specified branch or treeish.

--unused

Show whereis information for files found by last run of git-annex unused.

--batch

Enables batch mode, in which a file is read in a line from stdin, its information displayed, and repeat.

Note that if the file is not an annexed file, or does not match specified file matching options, an empty line will be output instead.

--json

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

--json-error-messages

Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
