App::Pinto::Command::diff - show difference between two stacks
pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT diff [OPTIONS] LEFT [RIGHT]
!! THIS COMMAND IS EXPERIMENTAL !!
This command shows the difference between two stacks or revisions, presented in a format similar to diff.
Command arguments are the names of the stacks or revision IDs to compare. If you specify a stack name, the head revision of that stack will be used. If you only specify one argument, then it is assumed to be the RIGHT and the head revision of the default stack will be used as the LEFT. Revision IDs can be truncated to uniqueness.
Controls the style of the diff reports. STYLE must be either
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 be 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.
printf-style format string describing how individual lines of the diff are to be printed. For the description of the
FORMAT, please refer to "COMMAND OPTIONS" in App::Pinto::Command::list.
The default format for
concise diffs is
%o[%F] %a/%f. The default format for
detailed diffs is
%o[%F] %-40p %12v %a/%f.
