NAME¶git-annex-lock - lock files to prevent modification
SYNOPSIS¶git annex lock [path ...]
DESCRIPTION¶Lock the specified annexed files, to prevent them from being modified. When no files are specified, all annexed files in the current directory are locked.
Locking a file changes how it is stored in the git repository (from a pointer file to a symlink), so this command will make a change that you can commit.
- file matching options
- The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to lock.
- Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
- Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
- Also the git-annex-common-options(1) can be used.
