    use Arch::Tree;
    foreach my $log (Arch::Tree->new->get_logs) {
        print "-" x 80, "\n";
        print $log->standard_date, "\n";

The Arch-Perl library allows Perl developers to create GNU Arch front-ends in an object oriented fashion. GNU Arch is a decentralized, changeset-oriented revision control system.

Currently, a pragmatic high-level interface is built around tla or baz. This functionality was initially developed for ArchZoom project, and was highly enhanced to serve AXP and ArchWay projects as well.
