VCP::Dest::revml(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  VCP::Dest::revml(3)

NAME
       VCP::Dest::revml	- Outputs versioned files to a revml file

SYNOPSIS
	  revml:[<output-file>]
	  revml:[<output-file>]	--dtd <revml.dtd>
	  revml:[<output-file>]	--version <version>
	  revml:[<output-file>]	--compress
	  revml:[<output-file>]	--no-indent

DESCRIPTION
OPTIONS
       --dtd
	      --dtd=revml.dtd
	      --version=0.33

	   The --dtd (or --version) option causes the output to	be checked
	   against a particular	version	of revml.  This	does not cause output
	   to be in that version, but makes sure that output is	compliant with
	   that	version.

       --compress
	   Generate a gzipped revml file as output.  Requires gzip be
	   installed on	the machine.

	   If the output filename ends in ".gz", the output will be compressed
	   even	if the --compress flag isn't present.

       --no-indent
	   Makes the revml output with all the start tags flush	left rather
	   than	indented to indicate the tree structure.

EXTERNAL METHODS
       new Creates a new instance.  The	only parameter is '-dtd', which
	   overrides the default DTD found by searching	for modules matching
	   RevML::DTD:v*.pm.

	   Attempts to create the output file if one is	specified.

       ui_set_revml_repo_spec
	   set the repo_spec, but die if no good.  this	should be called from
	   a ui	handler	that will handle exceptions.

LIMITATIONS
       Can consume all available memory	and disk space because this driver
       keeps all old revisions around (metadata	in RAM,	file images on disk)
       so that diff()s may be run against the parent revision when a branch is
       made.

       This behavior is	not completely necessary, but because RevML is
       currently only used for testing and analysis of small filesets, this
       limitation is acceptable.

       We can add a command line option	to disable this	behavior by limiting
       (to 0 or	to some	cache size) the	number of revs kept around and letting
       files that have no previous rev handy be	emitted	in their entirety
       instead of use a	diff.  We could	also use an on-disk store for the
       metadata	if that	would help.  Let us know your needs.
