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...] < <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
