1. NAME

git-check-attr - Display gitattributes information

2. SYNOPSIS



 
Sélectionnez
git check-attr attr... [--] pathname...
git check-attr --stdin [-z] attr... < <list-of-paths>



3. DESCRIPTION



For every pathname, this command will list if each attribute is unspecified, set, or unset as a gitattribute on that pathname.

4. OPTIONS

--stdin
    Read file names from stdin instead of from the command-line.

-z
    Only meaningful with --stdin; paths are separated with a NUL character instead of a linefeed character.

--
    Interpret all preceding arguments as attributes and all following arguments as path names. If not supplied, only the first argument will be treated as an attribute.

5. OUTPUT



The output is of the form: <path> COLON SP <attribute> COLON SP <info> LF

<path> is the path of a file being queried, <attribute> is an attribute being queried and <info> can be either:

unspecified
    when the attribute is not defined for the path.

unset
    when the attribute is defined as false.

set
    when the attribute is defined as true.

<value>
    when a value has been assigned to the attribute.

6. EXAMPLES



In the examples, the following .gitattributes file is used:


    .

*.java diff=java -crlf myAttr
NoMyAttr.java !myAttr
README caveat=unspecified

.




    .ie n \ \h'-04'\h'+03'\c .
