file matching options
The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to act on.
Show where a particular git-annex key is located.
Show whereis information for all known keys.
Show whereis information for files found by last run of git-annex unused.
Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
Enables batch mode, in which a file is read in a line from stdin, its information displayed, and repeat.
Note that if the file is not an annexed file, an empty line will be output instead.
