NAME

       git-annex-examinekey - prints information from a key

SYNOPSIS

       git annex examinekey [key ...]

DESCRIPTION

       This  plumbing-level command is given a key, and prints information that can be determined
       purely by looking at the key.

OPTIONS

       --format=value

              Use custom output formatting.

              The value is a format string, in which '${var}' is  expanded  to  the  value  of  a
              variable.  To  right-justify  a  variable  with whitespace, use '${var;width}' ; to
              left-justify a variable, use '${var;-width}'; to escape  unusual  characters  in  a
              variable, use '${escaped_var}'

              These  variables  are  available  for  use  in  formats:  key,  backend,  bytesize,
              humansize, keyname, hashdirlower, hashdirmixed, mtime (for the  mtime  field  of  a
              WORM key).

              Also, '\n' is a newline, '\000' is a NULL, etc.

       --json Enable  JSON  output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex.
              Each line of output is a JSON object.

       --json-error-messages
              Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in  the  json
              instead.

       --batch
              Enable  batch  mode,  in  which  a  line  containing  a key is read from stdin, the
              information about it is output to stdout, and repeat.

EXAMPLES

       The location where the content of a key is stored can be looked up by running:

        git annex examinekey $KEY --format='.git/annex/objects/${hashdirmixed}${key}/${key}'
