Class DirCacheEditor.PathEdit

  • Direct Known Subclasses:
    DirCacheEditor.DeletePath, DirCacheEditor.DeleteTree
    Enclosing class:

    public abstract static class DirCacheEditor.PathEdit
    extends Object
    Any index record update.

    Applications should subclass and provide their own implementation for the apply(DirCacheEntry) method. The editor will invoke apply once for each record in the index which matches the path name. If there are multiple records (for example in stages 1, 2 and 3), the edit instance will be called multiple times, once for each stage. If any of these calls resets the stage to 0, only this entry will be taken and entries for other stages are discarded.

        public DirCacheEditor.PathEdit setReplace​(boolean ok)
        Configure if a file can replace a directory (or vice versa).

      • apply

        public abstract void apply​(DirCacheEntry ent)

        ent - the entry being processed. All fields are zeroed out if the path is a new path in the index.
