App::Pinto::Command::register - put existing packages on a stack


version 0.097


  pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT register [OPTIONS] ARCHIVE ...


This command adds packages to a stack. The archive which contains those packages must already exist in the repository.
To add packages from an archive in an upstream repository, use the pull command. To add packages from a local archive, use the add command.


Arguments are the archives you want to register. Archives are specified as "AUTHOR/ARCHIVE_NAME". For example:
You can also pipe arguments to this command over STDIN. In that case, blank lines and lines that look like comments (i.e. starting with "#" or ';') will be ignored.


Go through all the motions, but do not actually commit any changes to the repository. Use this option to see how the command would potentially impact the stack.
Use TEXT as the revision history log message. If you do not use the "--message" option or the "--use-default-message" option, then you will be prompted to enter the message via your text editor. Use the "EDITOR" or "VISUAL" environment variables to control which editor is used. A log message is not required whenever the "--dry-run" option is set, or if the action did not yield any changes to the repository.
Registers the targets on the stack with the given NAME. Defaults to the name of whichever stack is currently marked as the default stack. Use the stacks command to see the stacks in the repository.
Use the default value for the revision history log message. Pinto will generate a semi-informative log message just based on the command and its arguments. If you set an explicit message with "--message", the "--use-default-message" option will be silently ignored.
