NAME
       git-check-mailmap - Show canonical names and email addresses of
       contacts

SYNOPSIS
       git check-mailmap [<options>] <contact>...


DESCRIPTION
       For each "Name <user@host>" or "<user@host>" from the command-line or
       standard input (when using --stdin), look up the person's canonical
       name and email address (see "Mapping Authors" below). If found, print
       them; otherwise print the input as-is.

OPTIONS
       --stdin
           Read contacts, one per line, from the standard input after
           exhausting contacts provided on the command-line.

OUTPUT
       For each contact, a single line is output, terminated by a newline. If
       the name is provided or known to the mailmap, "Name <user@host>" is
       printed; otherwise only "<user@host>" is printed.

CONFIGURATION
       See mailmap.file and mailmap.blob in git-config(1) for how to specify a
       custom .mailmap target file or object.
