NAME ^

File::Find::Object::Rule::VCS - Exclude files/directories for Version Control Systems

SYNOPSIS ^

  use File::Find::Object::Rule      ();
  use File::Find::Object::Rule::VCS ();

  # Find all files smaller than 10k, ignoring version control files
  my @files = File::Find::Object::Rule->ignore_vcs
                                      ->file
                                      ->size('<10Ki')
                                      ->in( $dir );

DESCRIPTION ^

Many tools need to be equally useful both on ordinary files, and on code that has been checked out from revision control systems.

File::Find::Object::Rule::VCS provides quick and convenient methods to exclude the version control directories of several major Version Control Systems (currently CVS, subversion, and Bazaar).

File::Find::Object::Rule::VCS implements methods to ignore the following:

CVS
Subversion
Bazaar

In addition, the following version control systems do not create directories in the checkout and do not require the use of any ignore methods

SVK
Git

METHODS ^

ignore_vcs

  # Ignore all common version control systems
  $find->ignore_vcs;

  # Ignore a specific named version control systems
  $find->ignore_vcs($name);

  # Ignore nothing (silent pass-through)
  $find->ignore_vcs('');

The ignore_vcs method excludes the files for a named Version Control System from your File::Find::Object::Rule search.

If passed, the name of the version control system is case in-sensitive. Names currently supported are 'cvs', 'svn', 'subversion', 'bzr', and 'bazaar'.

As a convenience for high-level APIs, if the VCS name is the defined null string '' then the call will be treated as a nullop.

If no params at all are passed, this method will ignore all supported version control systems. If ignoring every version control system, please note that any legitimate directories called "CVS" or files starting with .# will be ignored, which is not always desirable.

In widely-distributed code, you instead should try to detect the specific version control system used and call ignore_vcs with the specific name.

Passing undef, or an unsupported name, will throw an exception.

ignore_cvs

The ignore_cvs method excluding all CVS directories from your File::Find::Object::Rule search.

It will also exclude all the files left around by CVS after an automated merge that start with '.#' (dot-hash).

ignore_svn

The ignore_svn method excluding all Subversion (.svn) directories from your File::Find::Object::Rule search.

ignore_bzr

The ignore_bzr method excluding all Bazaar (.bzr) directories from your File::Find::Object::Rule search.

ignore_git

The ignore_git method excluding all Git (.git) directories from your File::Find::Object::Rule search.

TO DO ^

- Add support for other version control systems.

- Add other useful VCS-related methods
