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

       git-check-attr - Display gitattributes information

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

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

       -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.

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

           Read pathnames from the standard input, one per line, instead of from the

           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

       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.

       The output is of the form:  COLON SP  COLON SP  LF

       unless -z is in effect, in which case NUL is used as delimiter:  NUL  NUL

        is the path of a file being queried,  is an attribute being queried and
        can be either:

           when the attribute is not defined for the path.

           when the attribute is defined as false.

           when the attribute is defined as true.

           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.

       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
