NAME

Git::Raw::Branch - Git branch class

VERSION

version 0.33

SYNOPSIS

    use Git::Raw;

    # open the Git repository at $path
    my $repo = Git::Raw::Repository -> open($path);

    # create a new branch named 'some_branch'
    $repo -> branch('some_branch', $repo -> head -> target);

DESCRIPTION

Helper class for branch manipulation. Note that a Git branch is nothing more than a Git::Raw::Reference, so this class inherits all methods from it.

WARNING: The API of this module is unstable and may change without warning (any change will be appropriately documented in the changelog).

METHODS

create( $repo, $name, $target )

Create a new branch given a name and a target object (either a Git::Raw::Commit or a Git::Raw::Tag).

lookup( $repo, $name, $is_local )

Retrieve the branch corresponding to the given branch name.

move( $name, $force )

Rename the branch to $name. Note that in order to get the updated branch object, an additional Git::Raw::Branch->lookup() is needed.

upstream( )

Retrieve the reference supporting the remote tracking branch, given the local branch.

is_head( )

Check if the current local branch is pointed at by HEAD.
