App::Pinto::Command::unpin - free packages that have been pinned


version 0.0994


  pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT unpin [OPTIONS] TARGET ...


This command unpins package in the stack, so that the stack can be merged into another stack with a newer packages, or so the packages can be upgraded to a newer version within this stack.


Arguments are the targets you wish to unpin. Targets can be specified as packages or distributions, such as:



When unpinning a distribution, all the packages in that distribution become unpinned. Likewise when unpinning a package, all its sister packages in the same distribution also become unpinned.

You can also pipe arguments to this command over STDIN. In that case, blank lines and lines that look like comments (i.e. starting with "#" or ';') will be ignored.



Controls the style of the diff reports. STYLE must be either concise or detailed. Concise reports show only one record for each distribution added or deleted. Detailed reports show one record for every package added or deleted.

The default style is concise. However, the default style can changed by setting the PINTO_DIFF_STYLE environment variable to your preferred STYLE. This variable affects the default style for diff reports generated by all other commands too.


Go through all the motions, but do not actually commit any changes to the repository. Use this option to see how the command would potentially impact the stack.


Use TEXT as the revision history log message. If you do not use the --message option or the --use-default-message option, then you will be prompted to enter the message via your text editor. Use the EDITOR or VISUAL environment variables to control which editor is used. A log message is not required whenever the --dry-run option is set, or if the action did not yield any changes to the repository.


Unpins the package on the stack with the given NAME. Defaults to the name of whichever stack is currently marked as the default stack. Use the stacks command to see your stacks.


Use the default value for the revision history log message. Pinto will generate a semi-informative log message just based on the command and its arguments. If you set an explicit message with --message, the --use-default-message option will be silently ignored.
