NOTMUCH-COUNT(1)		    notmuch		      NOTMUCH-COUNT(1)

NAME
       notmuch-count - count messages matching the given search	terms

SYNOPSIS
       notmuch count [option ...] <search-term>	...

DESCRIPTION
       Count messages matching the search terms.

       The number of matching messages (or threads) is output to stdout.

       With no search terms, a count of	all messages (or threads) in the data-
       base will be displayed.

       See notmuch-search-terms(7) for details of  the	supported  syntax  for
       <search-terms>.

       Supported options for count include

       --output=(messages|threads|files)

	      messages
		     Output  the  number of matching messages. This is the de-
		     fault.

	      threads
		     Output the	number of matching threads.

	      files  Output the	number of files	associated with	matching  mes-
		     sages.  This  may	be  bigger than	the number of matching
		     messages due to duplicates	(i.e.  multiple	 files	having
		     the same message-id).

       --exclude=(true|false)
	      Specify  whether	to  omit messages matching search.exclude_tags
	      from the count (the default) or not.

       --batch
	      Read queries from	a file (stdin by default), one per  line,  and
	      output  the  number of matching messages (or threads) to stdout,
	      one per line. On an empty	input line the count of	 all  messages
	      (or  threads) in the database will be output. This option	is not
	      compatible with specifying search	terms on the command line.

       --lastmod
	      Append lastmod (counter for number of database updates) and UUID
	      to  the output. lastmod values are only comparable between data-
	      bases with the same UUID.

       --input=<filename>
	      Read input from given  file,  instead  of	 from  stdin.  Implies
	      --batch.
