SVN::Dump::Record - A SVN dump record
# SVN::Dump::Record objects are returned by the next_record() # method of SVN::Dump
An SVN::Dump::Record object represents a Subversion dump record.
SVN::Dump provides the following gourps of methods:
Create a new empty SVN::Dump::Record object.
Return the record type, as guessed from its headers.
The method dies if the record type cannot be determined.
Set the header
$h to the value
Get the value of header
Set the property
$p to the value
Get the value of property
Delete the properties named in
@p. Properties that do not exist in the record will be silently ignored.
Set the value of the text block.
Get the value of the text block.
The following methods provide access to these blocks:
Get or set the SVN::Dump::Headers object that represents the record headers.
Get or set the SVN::Dump::Property object that represents the record property block.
Delete the given properties. Behaves like the builtin
Get or set the SVN::Dump::Text object that represents the record text block.
Some special record are actually output recursiveley by svnadmin dump. The "record in the record" is stored within the parent record, so they are parsed as a single record with an included record.
set_record() give access to the included record.
According to the Subversion sources (subversion/libsvn_repos/dump.c), this is a "delete original, then add-with-history" node. The dump looks like this:
Node-path: tags/mytag/myfile Node-kind: file Node-action: delete Node-path: tags/mytag/myfile Node-kind: file Node-action: add Node-copyfrom-rev: 23 Node-copyfrom-path: trunk/myfile
Note that there is a single blank line after the first header block, and four after the included one.
Update the various
...-length headers. Used internally.
You must call this method if you update the inner property or text blocks directly, or the results of
as_string() will be inconsistent.
Return a boolean value indicating if the record has a property block.
Return a boolean value indicating if the record has a text block.
Return a boolean value indicating if the record has only a property block (and no text block).
Return a boolean value indicating if the record has a property block or a text block.
Return the length of the property block.
Return the length of the text block.
Return a string representation of the record that will be understood by other Subversion tools, such as
Warning: dumping a record currently returns the information that was read from the original dump. This means that if you modified the property or text block of a record, the headers will be inconsistent.
When using SVN::Dump to manipulate a SVN dump, one should not access the SVN::Dump::Headers, SVN::Dump::Property and SVN::Dump::Text components of a SVN::Dump::Record object directly, but use the appropriate
get_...() methods of the record object.
These methods compute the appropriate modifications of the header values, so that the
as_string() method outputs the correct information after any modification of the record.
