              [--unavailable-path-status LABEL] [--unavailable-path-msg  message]  [--nondataset-

DESCRIPTION

       Given  paths  (or  more  generally  location  requests) are inspected and annotated with a
       number of properties. A list of recognized properties is provided below.

   Recognized path properties
       "action"
         label of the action that triggered the path annotation

       "annexkey"
         annex key for the content of a file

       "logger"
         logger for reporting a message

       "message"
         message (plus possible tsring expansion arguments)

       "orig_request"
         original input by which a path was determined

       "parentds"
         path of dataset containing the annotated path (superdataset
         for subdatasets)

       "path"
         absolute path that is annotated

       "process_content"
         flag that content underneath the path is to be processed

       "process_updated_only"
         flag that only known dataset components are to be processed

       "raw_input"
         flag whether this path was given as raw (non-annotated) input

       "refds"
         path of a reference/base dataset the annotated path is part of

       "registered_subds"
         flag whether a dataset is known to be a true subdataset of
         PARENTDS

       "revision"
         the recorded commit for a subdataset in a superdataset

       "revision_descr"
         a human-readable description of REVISION

       "source_url"
         URL a dataset was installed from

       "staged"
         flag whether a path is known to be "staged" in its containing
         dataset

       "state"
         state indicator for a path in its containing dataset (clean,
         modified, absent (also for files), conflict)

       "status"
         action result status (ok, notneeded, impossible, error)

       "type"
         nature of the path (file, directory, dataset)

       "url"
         registered URL for a subdataset in a superdataset

       In the  case  of  enabled  modification  detection  the  results  may  contain  additional
       properties  regarding  the  nature  of the modification. See the documentation of the DIFF
       command for details.

OPTIONS

       PATH   path to be annotated. Constraints: value must be a string [Default: None]

       -h, --help, --help-np
              show this help message. --help-np forcefully  disables  the  use  of  a  pager  for
              displaying the help message

       -d DATASET, --dataset DATASET
              an  optional  reference/base  dataset  for  the paths. Constraints: Value must be a
              Dataset or a valid identifier of a Dataset (e.g. a path) [Default: None]

       -r, --recursive
              if set, recurse into potential subdataset. [Default: False]

       --recursion-limit LEVELS
              limit recursion into subdataset to the given number of levels.  Constraints:  value
              must be convertible to type 'int' [Default: None]

       --action LABEL
              an  "action"  property  value to include in the path annotation. Constraints: value
              must be a string [Default: None]

       --unavailable-path-status LABEL
              a "status" property  value  to  include  in  the  annotation  for  paths  that  are
              underneath  a  dataset, but do not exist on the filesystem. Constraints: value must
              be a string [Default: '']

       --unavailable-path-msg message
              a "message" property value  to  include  in  the  annotation  for  paths  that  are
              underneath  a  dataset, but do not exist on the filesystem. Constraints: value must
              be a string [Default: None]

       --nondataset-path-status LABEL
              a "status" property value to include in the  annotation  for  paths  that  are  not
              underneath any dataset. Constraints: value must be a string [Default: 'error']

       --no-parentds-discovery
              Flag  to  disable reports of parent dataset information for any path, in particular
              dataset root paths. Disabling saves on command run time, if this information is not
              needed. [Default: True]

       --no-subds-discovery
              Flag  to  disable  reporting type='dataset' for subdatasets, even when they are not
              installed, or their mount point directory doesn't exist. Disabling saves on command
              run time, if this information is not needed. [Default: True]

       --revision-change-discovery
              Flag  to disable discovery of changes which were not yet committed. Disabling saves
              on command run time, if this information is not needed. [Default: True]

       --no-untracked-discovery
              Flag to disable discovery of untracked changes.  Disabling  saves  on  command  run
              time, if this information is not needed. [Default: True]

       --modified [MODIFIED]
              comparison reference specification for modification detection. This can be (mostly)
              anything  that  `git  diff`  understands  (commit,  treeish,  tag,  etc).  See  the
              documentation  of  `datalad diff --revision` for details. Unmodified paths will not
              be annotated. If a requested path was not modified but some content  underneath  it
              was,  then  the  request  is replaced by the modified paths and those are annotated
              instead. This option can be used without an argument to test against  changes  that
              have  been made, but have not yet been staged for a commit. Constraints: value must
              be a string, or value must be convertible to type bool [Default: None]
