# Totally unstable API.

=head1 DESCRIPTION
 
This module provides Perl scripts easy way to interface the Git version control
system. The modules have an easy and well-tested way to call arbitrary Git
commands; in the future, the interface will also provide specialized methods
for doing easily operations which are not totally trivial to do over
the generic command interface.
 
While some commands can be executed outside of any context (e.g. 'version'
or 'init-db'), most operations require a repository context, which in practice
means getting an instance of the Git object using the repository() constructor.
(In the future, we will also get a new_repository() constructor.) All commands
called as methods of the object are then executed in the context of the
repository.
 
TODO: In the future, we might also do
 
	my $subdir = $repo->subdir('Documentation');
	# Gets called in the subdirectory context:
	$subdir->command('status');
 
	my $remoterepo = $repo->remote_repository (Name => 'cogito', Branch => 'master');
	$remoterepo ||= Git->remote_repository ('http://git.or.cz/cogito.git/');
	my @refs = $remoterepo->refs();
 
So far, all functions just die if anything goes wrong. If you don't want that,
make appropriate provisions to catch the possible deaths. Better error recovery
mechanisms will be provided in the future.
 
Currently, the module merely wraps calls to external Git tools. In the future,
it will provide a much faster way to interact with Git by linking directly
to libgit. This should be completely opaque to the user, though (performance
increate nonwithstanding).

=head1 CONSTRUCTORS
 
=over 4
 
=item repository ( OPTIONS )
 
=item repository ( DIRECTORY )
 
=item repository ()
 
Construct a new repository object.
C<OPTIONS> are passed in a hash like fashion, using key and value pairs.
Possible options are:
 
B<Repository> - Path to the Git repository.
 
B<WorkingCopy> - Path to the associated working copy; not strictly required
as many commands will happily crunch on a bare repository.
 
B<Directory> - Path to the Git working directory in its usual setup. This
is just for convenient setting of both C<Repository> and C<WorkingCopy>
at once: If the directory as a C<.git> subdirectory, C<Repository> is pointed
to the subdirectory and the directory is assumed to be the working copy.
If the directory does not have the subdirectory, C<WorkingCopy> is left
undefined and C<Repository> is pointed to the directory itself.
 
You should not use both C<Directory> and either of C<Repository> and
C<WorkingCopy> - the results of that are undefined.
 
Alternatively, a directory path may be passed as a single scalar argument
to the constructor; it is equivalent to setting only the C<Directory> option
field.
 
Calling the constructor with no options whatsoever is equivalent to
calling it with C<< Directory => '.' >>.

=head1 METHODS
 
=over 4
 
=item command ( COMMAND [, ARGUMENTS... ] )
 
Execute the given Git C<COMMAND> (specify it without the 'git-'
prefix), optionally with the specified extra C<ARGUMENTS>.
 
The method can be called without any instance or on a specified Git repository
(in that case the command will be run in the repository context).
 
In scalar context, it returns all the command output in a single string
(verbatim).
 
In array context, it returns an array containing lines printed to the
command's stdout (without trailing newlines).
 
In both cases, the command's stdin and stderr are the same as the caller's.
 
=cut
 
sub command {
	my $fh = command_pipe(@_);
 
	if (not defined wantarray) {
		_cmd_close($fh);
 
	} elsif (not wantarray) {
		local $/;
		my $text = <$fh>;
		_cmd_close($fh);
		return $text;
 
	} else {
		my @lines = <$fh>;
		_cmd_close($fh);
		chomp @lines;
		return @lines;
	}
}
 
 
=item command_oneline ( COMMAND [, ARGUMENTS... ] )
 
Execute the given C<COMMAND> in the same way as command()
does but always return a scalar string containing the first line
of the command's standard output.
 
=cut
 
sub command_oneline {
	my $fh = command_pipe(@_);
 
	my $line = <$fh>;
	_cmd_close($fh);
 
	chomp $line;
	return $line;
}
 
 
=item command_pipe ( COMMAND [, ARGUMENTS... ] )
 
Execute the given C<COMMAND> in the same way as command()
does but return a pipe filehandle from which the command output can be
read.
 
=cut
 
sub command_pipe {
	my ($self, $cmd, @args) = _maybe_self(@_);
 
	$cmd =~ /^[a-z0-9A-Z_-]+$/ or croak "bad command: $cmd";
 
	my $pid = open(my $fh, "-|");
	if (not defined $pid) {
		croak "open failed: $!";
	} elsif ($pid == 0) {
		_cmd_exec($self, $cmd, @args);
	}
	return $fh;
}
 
 
=item command_noisy ( COMMAND [, ARGUMENTS... ] )
 
Execute the given C<COMMAND> in the same way as command() does but do not
capture the command output - the standard output is not redirected and goes
to the standard output of the caller application.
 
While the method is called command_noisy(), you might want to as well use
it for the most silent Git commands which you know will never pollute your
stdout but you want to avoid the overhead of the pipe setup when calling them.
 
The function returns only after the command has finished running.
 
=cut
 
sub command_noisy {
	my ($self, $cmd, @args) = _maybe_self(@_);
 
	$cmd =~ /^[a-z0-9A-Z_-]+$/ or croak "bad command: $cmd";
 
	my $pid = fork;
	if (not defined $pid) {
		croak "fork failed: $!";
	} elsif ($pid == 0) {
		_cmd_exec($self, $cmd, @args);
	}
	if (waitpid($pid, 0) > 0 and $? != 0) {
		croak "exit status: $?";
	}
}
 
 
=item exec_path ()
 
Return path to the git sub-command executables (the same as
C<git --exec-path>). Useful mostly only internally.
 
Implementation of this function is very fast; no external command calls
are involved.
 
=cut
 
# Implemented in Git.xs.
 
 
=item hash_object ( FILENAME [, TYPE ] )
 
=item hash_object ( FILEHANDLE [, TYPE ] )
 
Compute the SHA1 object id of the given C<FILENAME> (or data waiting in
C<FILEHANDLE>) considering it is of the C<TYPE> object type (C<blob>
(default), C<commit>, C<tree>).
 
In case of C<FILEHANDLE> passed instead of file name, all the data
available are read and hashed, and the filehandle is automatically
closed. The file handle should be freshly opened - if you have already
read anything from the file handle, the results are undefined (since
this function works directly with the file descriptor and internal
PerlIO buffering might have messed things up).
 
The method can be called without any instance or on a specified Git repository,
it makes zero difference.
 
The function returns the SHA1 hash.
 
Implementation of this function is very fast; no external command calls
are involved.

=head1 TODO
 
This is still fairly crude.
We need some good way to report errors back except just dying.
