Git::Repository::Log::Iterator - Split a git log stream into records


version 1.311


    use Git::Repository::Log::Iterator;

    # use a default Git::Repository context
    my $iter = Git::Repository::Log::Iterator->new('HEAD~10..');

    # or provide an existing instance
    my $iter = Git::Repository::Log::Iterator->new( $r, 'HEAD~10..' );

    # get the next log record
    while ( my $log = $iter->next ) {


Git::Repository::Log::Iterator initiates a git log command from a list of paramaters and parses its output to produce Git::Repository::Log objects represening each log item.



    my $iter = Git::Repository::Log::Iterator->new( @args );

Create a new git log stream from the parameter list in @args and return a iterator on it.

new() will happily accept any parameters, but note that Git::Repository::Log::Iterator expects the output to look like that of --pretty=raw, and so will force the the --pretty option (in case format.pretty is defined in the Git configuration). It will also forcibly remove colored output (using --color=never).

Extra output (like patches) will be stored in the extra parameter of the Git::Repository::Log object. Decorations will be lost.

When unsupported options are recognized in the parameter list, new() will croak() with a message advising to use run( 'log' => ... ) to parse the output yourself.


    my $log = $iter->next;

Return the next log item as a Git::Repository::Log object, or nothing if the stream has ended.
