A Git::Raw::Tree represents a Git tree.

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


lookup( $repo, $id )

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

owner( )

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

id( )

Retrieve the id of the tree, as a string.

entries( )

Retrieve a list of Git::Raw::Tree::Entry objects.

entry_byname( $name )

Retrieve a Git::Raw::Tree::Entry object by name. If the entry cannot be found, this function will return "undef".

entry_bypath( $path )

Retrieve a Git::Raw::Tree::Entry object by path. If the entry cannot be found, this function will return "undef".

merge( $ancestor, $theirs, [\%merge_opts] )

Merge $theirs into this tree. $ancestor and $theirs should be Git::Raw::Tree objects. See "Git::Raw::Repository->merge()" for valid %merge_opts values. Returns a Git::Raw::Index object containing the merge result.

diff( [\%diff_opts] )

Compute the Git::Raw::Diff between two trees. See "Git::Raw::Repository->diff()" for valid %diff_opts values.

Returns true.
