NAME

       git-annex-whereis - lists repositories that have file content

SYNOPSIS

       git annex whereis [path ...]

DESCRIPTION

       Displays information about where the contents of files are located.

       For example:

        # git annex whereis
        whereis my_cool_big_file (1 copy)
            0c443de8-e644-11df-acbf-f7cd7ca6210d  -- laptop
        whereis other_file (3 copies)
            0c443de8-e644-11df-acbf-f7cd7ca6210d  -- laptop
            62b39bbe-4149-11e0-af01-bb89245a1e61  -- usb drive [here]
            7570b02e-15e9-11e0-adf0-9f3f94cb2eaa  -- backup drive

       Note  that  this command does not contact remotes to verify if they still have the content
       of files. It only reports on the last information that was received from remotes.

OPTIONS

       file matching options

              The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to act on.

       --key=keyname
              Show where a particular git-annex key is located.

       --all -A
              Show whereis information for all known keys.

       --branch=ref
              Show whereis information for files in the specified branch or treeish.

       --unused
              Show whereis information for files found by last run of git-annex unused.

       --batch
              Enables batch mode, in which a file is read in a line from stdin,  its  information
              displayed, and repeat.

              Note  that  if  the  file  is not an annexed file, or does not match specified file
              matching options, an empty line will be output instead.

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

       --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.
