Git::FastExport::Block - A block in a fast-export stream
This package is used internally by Git::FastExport.
Git::FastExport::Block represents blocks from a git fast-export stream.
it is a simple hash with keys pointing either to a string or a reference to an array of strings,
which makes it very easy to edit (when obtained via Git::FastExport
next_block() method) or create blocks in a git fast-export stream.
The following two keys are pointing to strings:
first line of the block
content of the block data section
All the other keys are pointing to references to arrays of strings (each string representing a line in the fast-export stream:
which keys are present depend on the type of the block,
which is conveniently stored in the
All other keys are ignored by
A Git::FastExport::Block structure is meant to be used as a hash, and is not protected by an accessor/mutator interface. Or a constructor.
However, the module provides a method for outputing blocks:
Return the block as a string suitable for git fast-import.
The original version of this module was created as part of my work for BOOKING.COM, which authorized its publication/distribution under the same terms as Perl itself.
