       tracker-info - Retrieve all information available for a certain file.

       tracker info [options...] <file1> [[file2] ...]

       tracker	info  asks  for	all the	known metadata available for the given

       Multiple	file arguments can be provided to retrieve  information	 about
       multiple	files.

       The file	argument can be	either a local path or a URI. It also does not
       have to be an absolute path.

       -f, --full-namespaces
	      By default, all keys and values reported about  any  given  file
	      are  returned in shortened form, for example, nie:title is shown
	      instead	     of
	      gies/2007/01/19/nie#title.  This makes things much easier	to see
	      generally	and the	output is less cluttered. This option reverses
	      that so FULL namespaces are shown	instead.

       -c, --plain-text-content
	      If  the  resource	being displayed	has nie:PlainTextContent (i.e.
	      information about	the content of the resource,  which  could  be
	      the  contents  of	a file on the disk), then this option displays
	      that in the output.

       -i, --resource-is-iri
	      In most cases, the file argument supplied	points	to  a  URL  or
	      PATH  which  is queried for according to the resource associated
	      with it by nie:url. However, in cases where the  file  specified
	      turns out	to be the actual URN itself, this argument is required
	      to tell "tracker info" not to do the extra step  of  looking  up
	      the URN related by nie:url.

	      For  example, consider that you store URNs by the	actual URL it-
	      self and use the unique nie:url in another  resource  (which  is
	      quite reasonable when using containers and multi-resource	condi-
	      tions), you would	need this argument to tell "tracker info" that
	      the file supplied	is actually a URN not URL.

       -t, --turtle
	      Output  results  as  Turtle RDF. If -f is	enabled, full URIs are
	      shown for	subjects, predicates and objects; otherwise, shortened
	      URIs  are	 used,	and  all  the prefixes Tracker knows about are
	      printed at the top of the	output.

	      This option allows you to	choose which backend you use for  con-
	      necting  to the database.	This choice can	limit your functional-
	      ity. There are three settings.

	      With "direct" the	connection to the database is made directly to
	      the  file	itself on the disk, there is no	intermediary daemon or
	      process. The "direct" approach is	purely read-only.

	      With "bus" the tracker-store process is used to liase  with  the
	      database	queuing	 all requests and managing the connections via
	      an IPC / D-Bus. This adds	a small	overhead BUT this is the  only
	      approach you can use if you want to write	to the database.

	      With  "auto"  the	backend	is decided for you, much like it would
	      be if this environment variable was undefined.

       tracker-store(1), tracker-sparql(1).
