NAME

       git-annex-fromkey - adds a file using a specific key

SYNOPSIS

       git annex fromkey [key file ...]

DESCRIPTION

       This plumbing-level command can be used to manually set up a file in the git repository to
       link to a specified key.

       Multiple pairs of file and key can be given in a single command line.

       If no key and file 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. Note that this does not register the url as a location of the
       key; use git-annex-registerurl(1) to do that.

OPTIONS

       --force

              Allow making a file link to a key whose content is not in the local repository. The
              key may not be known to git-annex at all.

       --batch
              In  batch input mode, lines are read from stdin, and each line should contain a key
              and filename, 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)
