NAME

       git-annex-calckey - calulate key for a file

SYNOPSIS

       git annex calckey [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

       This  plumbing-level command calculates the key that would be used to refer to a file. The
       file is not added to the annex by this command.  The key is output to stdout.

       The backend used is the one from the annex.backend configuration  setting,  which  can  be
       overridden by the --backend option.  For example, to force use of the SHA1 backend:

        git annex calckey --backend=SHA1 file

OPTIONS

       --backend=name

              Specifies which key-value backend to use.

       --batch
              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.

       -z     Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.
