=head1 NAME

Git::Repository::Log::Iterator - Split a git log stream into records


    use Git::Repository::Log::Iterator;

    # use a default Git::Repository context
    my $iter = Git::Repository::Log::Iterator->new('HEAD~10..');

    # or provide an existing instance
    my $iter = Git::Repository::Log::Iterator->new( $r, 'HEAD~10..' );

    # get the next log record
    while ( my $log = $iter->next ) {


C<Git::Repository::Log::Iterator> initiates a B<git log> command
from a list of paramaters and parses its output to produce
L<Git::Repository::Log> objects represening each log item.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new

    my $iter = Git::Repository::Log::Iterator->new( @args );

Create a new B<git log> stream from the parameter list in C<@args>
and return a iterator on it.

C<new()> will happily accept any parameters, but note that
C<Git::Repository::Log::Iterator> expects the output to look like that
of C<--pretty=raw>, and so will force the the C<--pretty> option
(in case C<format.pretty> is defined in the Git configuration).
It will also forcibly remove colored output (using C<--color=never>).

Extra output (like patches) will be stored in the C<extra> parameter of
the L<Git::Repository::Log> object. Decorations will be lost.

When unsupported options are recognized in the parameter list, C<new()>
will C<croak()> with a message advising to use C<< run( 'log' => ... ) >>
to parse the output yourself.

The object is really a blessed hash reference, with only two keys:

=over 4

=item cmd

The L<Git::Repository::Command> object running the actual B<git log>
command. It might not be defined in some cases (see below L</new_from_fh>
and L</new_from_file>).

=item fh

The filehandle from which the output of B<git log> is actually read.
This is the only attribute needed to run the L</next> method.


=head2 new_from_fh

This constructor makes it possible to provide the filehandle directly.

The C<cmd> key is not defined when using this constructor.

=head2 new_from_file

This constructor makes it possible to provide a filename that will be
C<open()>ed to produce a filehandle to read the log stream from.

The C<cmd> key is not defined when using this constructor.

=head2 next

    my $log = $iter->next;

Return the next log item as a L<Git::Repository::Log> object,
or nothing if the stream has ended.
