nix store add-file - add a regular file to the Nix store
nix store add-file [option...] path
Copy the regular file path to the Nix store, and print the resulting store path on standard output.
The resulting store path is not registered as a garbage collector root, so it could be deleted before you have a chance to register it.
Add a regular file to the store:
# echo foo > bar # nix store add-file ./bar /nix/store/cbv2s4bsvzjri77s2gb8g8bpcb6dpa8w-bar # cat /nix/store/cbv2s4bsvzjri77s2gb8g8bpcb6dpa8w-bar foo
Show what this command would do without doing it.
Override the name component of the store path. It defaults to the base name of path.
