Git::Annex::BatchCommand - Perl interface to git-annex --batch commands
# you should not instantiate this class yourself; use Git::Annex::batch my $annex = Git::Annex->new("/home/spwhitton/annex"); my $batch = $annex->batch("find", "--not", "--in=here"); # see git-annex-find(1) -- `git annex find --batch --not --in here` # prints an empty string for each file which is not present say "foo/bar is not present in this repo" unless $batch->ask("foo/bar");
This class can be used to run git-annex commands which take the
--batch option. You can feed the command lines of input and you will get back git-annex's responses.
The main point of using
--batch commands from Perl is to keep git-annex running rather than repeatedly executing new git-annex processes to perform queries or request changes.
Initialise a batch process in Git::Annex
$annex, running git-annex subcommand
setpresentkey) with arguments
You should use Git::Annex::batch in preference to this method.
Say a line or lines of input to the batch command's standard input. Trailing line breaks in
$input are optional.
In list context, returns a list of git-annex's responses to the items of input, chomped. In scalar context, returns the last of git-annex's responses, chomped.
Kill and restart the
This is sometimes needed to ensure the
--batch command picks up changes made to the git-annex branch.
