NAME

       datalad update - update a dataset from a sibling.

SYNOPSIS

       datalad  update  [-h]  [-s  SIBLING] [--merge] [-d DATASET] [-r] [-R LEVELS] [--fetch-all]
              [--reobtain-data] [PATH [PATH ...]]

OPTIONS

       PATH   path to a dataset that shall be  updated.  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

       -s SIBLING, --sibling SIBLING
              name of the sibling to update from. If  no  sibling  is  given,  updates  from  all
              siblings are obtained. Constraints: value must be a string [Default: None]

       --merge
              merge obtained changes from the given or the default sibling. [Default: False]

       -d DATASET, --dataset DATASET
              "specify  the  dataset  to  update.  If  no dataset is given, an attempt is made to
              identify the dataset based on the  input  and/or  the  current  working  directory.
              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]

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

       --fetch-all
              this option has no effect and will be removed in a future version. When no siblings
              are given, an all-sibling update will be performed. [Default: None]

       --reobtain-data
              if enabled, file content that was present before an update will be  re-obtained  in
              case a file was changed by the update. [Default: False]
