File::Inplace - Perl module for in-place editing of files SYNOPSIS
use File::Inplace; my $editor = new File::Inplace(file => "file.txt"); while (my ($line) = $editor->next_line) { $editor->replace_line(reverse $line); } $editor->commit; DESCRIPTION
File::Inplace is a perl module intended to ease the common task of editing a file in-place. Inspired by variations of perl's -i option, this module is intended for somewhat more structured and reusable editing than command line perl typically allows. File::Inplace endeavors to guarantee file integrity; that is, either all of the changes made will be saved to the file, or none will. It also offers functionality such as backup creation, automatic field splitting per-line, automatic chomping/unchomping, and aborting edits partially through without affecting the original file. CONSTRUCTOR
File::Inplace offers one constructor that accepts a number of parameters, one of which is required. File::Inplace->new(file => "filename", ...) file The one required parameter. This is the name of the file to edit. suffix The suffix for backup files. If not specified, no backups are made. chomp If set to zero, then automatic chomping will not be performed. Newlines (actually, the contents of $/) will remain in strings returned from "next_line". Additionally, the contents of $/ will not be appended when replacing lines. regex If specified, then each line will be split by this parameter when using "next_line_split" method. If unspecified, then this defaults to s+. separator The default character used to join each line when replace_line is invoked with a list instead of a single value. Defaults to a single space. INSTANCE METHODS
$editor->next_line () In scalar context, it returns the next line of the input file, or undef if there is no line. In an array context, it returns a single value of the line, or an empty list if there is no line. $editor->replace_line (value) Replaces the current line in the output file with the specified value. If passed a list, then each valie is joined by the "separator" specified at construction time. $editor->next_line_split () Line "next_line", except splits based on the "regex" specified in the constructor. $editor->has_lines () Returns true if the file contains any further lines. $editor->all_lines () Returns an array of all lines in the file being edited. $editor->replace_all_lines (@lines) Replaces all remaining lines in the file with the specified @lines. $editor->commit () Completes the edit operation and saves the changes to the edited file. $editor->rollback () Aborts the edit process. $editor->commit_to_backup () Saves edits to the backup file instead of the original file.

stg-edit - edit a patch description or diff SYNOPSIS
stg edit [options] [<patch>] DESCRIPTION
Edit the description and author information of the given patch (or the current patch if no patch name was given). With --diff, also edit the diff. The editor is invoked with the following contents: From: A U Thor <> Date: creation date Patch description If --diff was specified, the diff appears at the bottom, after a separator: --- Diff text Command-line options can be used to modify specific information without invoking the editor. (With the --edit option, the editor is invoked even if such command-line options are given.) If the patch diff is edited but does not apply, no changes are made to the patch at all. The edited patch is saved to a file which you can feed to "stg edit --file", once you have made sure it does apply. OPTIONS
-d, --diff Edit the patch diff. -e, --edit Invoke interactive editor. --sign Add a "Signed-off-by:" to the end of the patch. --ack Add an "Acked-by:" line to the end of the patch. -m MESSAGE, --message MESSAGE Use MESSAGE instead of invoking the editor. -f FILE, --file FILE Use the contents of FILE instead of invoking the editor. (If FILE is "-", write to stdout.) --save-template FILE Instead of running the command, just write the message template to FILE, and exit. (If FILE is "-", write to stdout.) When driving StGit from another program, it is often useful to first call a command with --save-template, then let the user edit the message, and then call the same command with --file. --author "NAME <EMAIL>" Set the author details. --authname NAME Set the author name. --authemail EMAIL Set the author email. --authdate DATE Set the author date. -O OPTIONS, --diff-opts OPTIONS Extra options to pass to "git diff".
