App::Pinto::Command::unregister - remove packages from a stack
pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT unregister [OPTIONS] TARGET ...
!! THIS COMMAND IS EXPERIMENTAL !!
This command unregisters packages from a stack, so that they no longer appear in
its index. However, the archives that contain the packages will remain in the
repository. When unregistering, all the sister packages in the same
distribution are also unregistered.
To permanently remove an archive from the repository, use the delete command. To
re-register packages on a stack, use the register command.
Arguments are the targets that you want to unregister. Targets can be specified
as packages (with or without version number) or distributions. For example:
Foo::Bar # Unregisters any version of Foo::Bar
Foo::Bar~1.2 # Unregisters Foo::Bar 1.2 or higher
SHAKESPEARE/King-Lear-1.2.tar.gz # Unregisters a specific distribuion
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.
- Unregister packages even if they are pinned to the stack.
Take care when unregistering pinned packages, as it usually means that
particular package is important to someone.
- -m TEXT
- 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.
- Unregisters the targets from 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.
