I decided to investigate this. I'll record here how I did it.
First, I verified that the output of
darcs changes -s | grep -v '^ *' | grep ' ./'
contains only lines of one of the following two formats:
" ./foo -> ./bar"
" X ./foo other_stuff"
where the space and other_stuff are optional
There weren't very many of the first case, so I checked
them all by hand and found that none of them were
For the second case, I did
Prelude Data.List> let
8).filter((" ./"`isPrefixOf`).drop 5).filter("
Prelude Data.List> System.Process.readProcess "/usr/bin/darcs"
Unfortunately, there were 14 hits. 3 of those were just noise generated
by a few straggler files still left in the root of the repo, but the other
11 were actually patches than spanned 2 or more subdirectories.
Wow, what a hack. Is there any easier way to do this?
Well, of course, I could write a nice neat program that scrapes
the output of darcs changes -s instead of a GHCi
one-liner hack. Or I could write an even bigger program
that paws through the output of darcs changes -s --xml.
What I mean is, is there anything better than scraping
darcs changes -s like that?
