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

NAME
       git-check-ignore - Debug gitignore / exclude files

SYNOPSIS
       git check-ignore [options] pathname...
       git check-ignore [options] --stdin < <list-of-paths>

DESCRIPTION
       For each pathname given via the command-line or from a file via --stdin, show the pattern
       from .gitignore (or other input files to the exclude mechanism) that decides if the
       pathname is excluded or included. Later patterns within a file take precedence over
       earlier ones.

OPTIONS
       -q, --quiet
	   Don't output anything, just set exit status. This is only valid with a single
	   pathname.

       -v, --verbose
	   Also output details about the matching pattern (if any) for each given pathname.

       --stdin
	   Read file names from stdin instead of from the command-line.

       -z
	   The output format is modified to be machine-parseable (see below). If --stdin is also
	   given, input paths are separated with a NUL character instead of a linefeed character.

OUTPUT
       By default, any of the given pathnames which match an ignore pattern will be output, one
       per line. If no pattern matches a given path, nothing will be output for that path; this
       means that path will not be ignored.

       If --verbose is specified, the output is a series of lines of the form:

       <source> <COLON> <linenum> <COLON> <pattern> <HT> <pathname>

       <pathname> is the path of a file being queried, <pattern> is the matching pattern,
       <source> is the pattern's source file, and <linenum> is the line number of the pattern
       within that source. If the pattern contained a ! prefix or / suffix, it will be preserved
       in the output. <source> will be an absolute path when referring to the file configured by
       core.excludesfile, or relative to the repository root when referring to .git/info/exclude
       or a per-directory exclude file.

       If -z is specified, the pathnames in the output are delimited by the null character; if
       --verbose is also specified then null characters are also used instead of colons and hard
       tabs:

       <source> <NULL> <linenum> <NULL> <pattern> <NULL> <pathname> <NULL>

EXIT STATUS
       0
	   One or more of the provided paths is ignored.

       1
	   None of the provided paths are ignored.

       128
	   A fatal error was encountered.
