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

       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
