Git::FastExport::Block - A block in a fast-export stream
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 easing to edit (when obtained via
next_block() method) or create.
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
Git::FastExport::Block structure is meant to be used as a hash,
and is not protected by an accessor/mutator interface.
However, the module provides a method for ouputing blocks:
Return the block as a string suitable for git-fast-import.
