       megals - List files stored in the cloud


       megals [-e] [-h] [--header] [-l] [-R] [-n] [<remotepaths>...]


       Lists files stored on, exports public download links.


       --export, -e
           For all files that are going to be listed, also display public download link with file

           NOTE: Folders export doesn’t work yet.

       --human, -h
           Display file sizes in a human readable format.

           For long list format, display header describing all listed columns.

       --long, -l
           List additional information about listed filesystem nodes. Node handle, owner, node
           type, file size, and the last modification date.

       --recursive, -R
           List directories recursively. This is the default if no paths are specified.

       --names, -n
           Show only names of nodes within the directory. This option has effect only if you
           specified a single path on a command line.

       -u <email>, --username <email>
           Account username (email)

       -p <password>, --password <password>
           Account password

           Never ask interactively for a password

           Reload filesystem cache

       --speed-limit <speed>
           Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. This option overrides config
           file settings. 0 means no limit.

       --proxy <proxy>
           Use proxy server to connect to This option overrides config file settings.
           More information can be found in libcurl documentation at
  Some acceptable values are:

           •   none : Disable proxy if it was enabled in the config file.

           •   socks5://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server

           •   socks5h://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server with DNS handled by the

       --config <path>
           Load configuration from a file

           Disable loading .megarc

       --debug [<options>]
           Enable debugging of various aspects of the megatools operation. You may enable
           multiple debugging options separated by commas. (eg.  --debug api,fs)

           Available options are:

           •   api: Dump API calls

           •   fs: Dump filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)

           •   cache: Dump cache contents

           Show version information

           One or more remote filesystem paths to list. If path points to a directory, contents
           of the directory and the directory itself is listed. When --names is given, only the
           contents of the directory is listed.

               If path points to a file, the file itself is listed.

               If ommited, the entire remote filesystem is listed recursively.


       •   List all files:

               $ megals


       •   List all files in the /Root, recursively and with details:

REMOTE FILESYSTEM filesystem is represented as a tree of nodes of various types. Nodes are
       identified by a 8 character node handles (eg. 7Fdi3ZjC). Structure of the filesystem is
       not encrypted.

       Megatools maps node tree structure to a traditional filesystem paths (eg.

       NOTE: By the nature of storage, several files in the directory can have the same
       name. To allow access to such files, the names of conflicting files are extended by
       appending dot and their node handle like this:


       You need to be aware of several special folders:

           Writable directory representing the root of the filesystem.

           Trash directory where web client moves deleted files. This directory is not
           used by megatools when removing files.

           Not sure.

           Directory containing subdirectories representing your contacts list. If you want to
           add contacts to the list, simply create subdirectory named after the contact you want
           to add.

           Directories representing individual contacts in your contacts list. These directories
           contain folders that others shared with you. All shared files are read-only, at the
