GIT-CHECK-ATTR(1)		  Git Manual		     GIT-CHECK-ATTR(1)

NAME
       git-check-attr -	Display	gitattributes information

SYNOPSIS
       git check-attr [-a | --all | attr...] [--] pathname...
       git check-attr --stdin [-z] [-a | --all | attr...]

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	pathnames from the standard input, one per line, instead of
	   from	the command-line.

       -z
	   The output format is	modified to be machine-parseable. If --stdin
	   is also given, input	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

       unless -z is in effect, in which	case NUL is used as delimiter: <path>
       NUL <attribute> NUL <info> NUL

       <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.

       Buffering happens as documented under the GIT_FLUSH option in git(1).
       The caller is responsible for avoiding deadlocks	caused by overfilling
       an input	buffer or reading from an empty	output buffer.

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

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

       o   Listing a single attribute:

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

       o   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

       o   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

       o   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

       o   Not all values are equally unambiguous:

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