       md_doc_help_kdb-getmetakdb-getmeta(1) -- Get the value of a meta key stored in the key
        - kdb getmeta <key-name> <meta-name>

       Where key-name is the full path to the key and meta-name is the name of the meta key the
       user would like to access.

       This command is used to print the value of a meta key. A meta key is information stored in
       a key which describes that key.

       The handling of cascading key-name does not differ to kdb get. Make sure to use the
       namespace spec, if you want meta-data from there.

       This command will return the following values as an exit status:

       · 0: No errors.

       · 1: Key not found. (Invalid path)

       · 2: Meta key not found. (Invalid meta-name).

       · -H, --help: Show the man page.

       · -V, --version: Print version info.

       · -n, --no-newline: Suppress the newline at the end of the output.

       To get the value of a meta key called description stored in the key spec/example/key: kdb
       getmeta spec/example/key description

       To get the value of meta key called override/#0 stored in the key spec/example/dir/key:
       kdb getmeta spec/example/dir/key 'override/#0'
