Git::Raw::Tag - Git tag class


version 0.79


    use Git::Raw;
    # open the Git repository at $path
    my $repo = Git::Raw::Repository -> open($path);
    # retrieve user's name and email from the Git configuration
    my $config = $repo -> config;
    my $name   = $config -> str('');
    my $email  = $config -> str('');
    # create a new Git signature
    my $me = Git::Raw::Signature -> now($name, $email);
    # create a new tag
    my $tag = $repo -> tag(
      'v0.1', 'Initial version', $me, $repo -> head -> target


A Git::Raw::Tag represents an annotated Git tag.

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


create( $repo, $name, $msg, $tagger, $target )

Create a new annotated tag given a name, a message, a Git::Raw::Signature representing the tagger and a target object.

lookup( $repo, $id )

Retrieve the tag corresponding to $id. This function is pretty much the same as "$repo->lookup($id)" except that it only returns tags. If the tag doesn't exist, this function will return "undef".

owner( )

Retrieve the Git::Raw::Repository owning the tag.

foreach( $repo, $callback, [$type] )

Run $callback for every tag in the repo. The callback receives a tag object, which will either a be a Git::Raw::Tag object for annotated tags, or a Git::Raw::Reference for lightweight tags. $type may be "all", "annotated" or "lightweight". If $type is not specified or is "undef", all tags will be returned. A non-zero return value stops the loop.

delete( )

Delete the tag. The Git::Raw::Tag object must not be accessed afterwards.

id( )

Retrieve the id of the tag, as a string.

name( )

Retrieve the name of the tag.

message( )

Retrieve the message of the tag.

tagger( )

Retrieve the Git::Raw::Signature representing the tag's tagger. If there is no tagger, "undef" will be returned.

target( )

Retrieve the target object of the tag.
