NAME

App::Pinto::Command::copy - create a new stack by copying another

VERSION

version 0.097

SYNOPSIS

  pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT copy [OPTIONS] FROM_STACK TO_STACK

DESCRIPTION

This command creates a new stack by copying an existing one. All the pins and properties from the existing stack will also be copied to the new one. The new stack must not already exist.
Use the new command to create a new empty stack, or the props command to change a stack's properties after it has been created.

COMMAND ARGUMENTS

The two required arguments are the name of the source and target stacks. Stack names must be alphanumeric plus hyphens, underscores, and periods, and are not case-sensitive.

COMMAND OPTIONS

--default
Also mark the new stack as the default stack.
--description=TEXT
-d TEXT
Use TEXT for the description of the stack. If not specified, defaults to 'Copy of stack FROM_STACK'.
--lock
Also lock the new stack to prevent future changes. This is useful for creating a read-only "tag" of a stack. You can always use the lock or unlock commands at a later time.
