       App::Pinto::Command::pin - force a package to stay in a stack


       version 0.097


         pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT pin [OPTIONS] TARGET ...


       This command pins a package so that it cannot be changed even if a different version is
       added or pulled to the stack The pin is local to the stack and does not affect any other

       A package must be registered on the stack before you can pin it.  To bring a package onto
       the stack, use the pull or register commands.  To remove the pin from a package, see the
       unpin command.

       When pinning, all its sister packages in that distribution also become pinned.  Pinned
       packages also cannot be unregistered from the stack or deleted from the repository without
       the "--force" option.


       Arguments are the targets you wish to unpin.  Targets can be specified as packages or
       distributions, such as:



       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.

       -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.

           Pins the package 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.

       -M  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.
