NAME

cargo-pkgid - Print a fully qualified package specification

SYNOPSIS

cargo pkgid [OPTIONS] [<SPEC>]

DESCRIPTION

Given a <SPEC> argument, print out the fully qualified package id specifier. This command will generate an error if <SPEC> is ambiguous as to which package it refers to in the dependency graph. If no <SPEC> is given, then the pkgid for the local package is printed.
This command requires that a lockfile is available and dependencies have been fetched.

--manifest-path PATH
Path to the manifest to the package to clean.
-v, --verbose
Use verbose output.
-q, --quiet
No output printed to stdout.
--color WHEN
Coloring: auto, always, never.

$ cargo pkgid foo
    
Retrieve package specification for version 1.0.0 of foo
$ cargo pkgid foo:1.0.0
