NAME

git-check-attr − Display gitattributes information

SYNOPSIS

git check−attr [−a | −−all | attr...] [−−] pathname...
git check−attr
−−stdin [−z] [−a | −−all | attr...] < <list−of−paths>

DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

−a, −−all

List all attributes that are associated with the specified paths. If this option is used, then unspecified attributes will not be included in the output.

−−cached

Consider .gitattributes in the index only, ignoring the working tree.

−−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 none of −−stdin, −−all, or −− is used, the first argument will be treated as an attribute and the rest of the arguments as pathnames.

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.

EXAMPLES

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

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

• Listing a single attribute:

$ git check−attr diff org/example/MyClass.java
org/example/MyClass.java: diff: java

• Listing multiple attributes for a file:

$ git check−attr crlf diff myAttr −− org/example/MyClass.java
org/example/MyClass.java: crlf: unset
org/example/MyClass.java: diff: java
org/example/MyClass.java: myAttr: set

• Listing all attributes for a file:

$ git check−attr −−all −− org/example/MyClass.java
org/example/MyClass.java: diff: java
org/example/MyClass.java: myAttr: set

• Listing an attribute for multiple files:

$ git check−attr myAttr −− org/example/MyClass.java org/example/NoMyAttr.java
org/example/MyClass.java: myAttr: set
org/example/NoMyAttr.java: myAttr: unspecified

• Not all values are equally unambiguous:

$ git check−attr caveat README
README: caveat: unspecified
