       pinto - Curate a custom repository of Perl modules


       version 0.097


         pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT [global options] COMMAND [command options] [args]


       pinto is a tool for creating and managing a custom CPAN-like repository of Perl modules.
       The purpose of such a repository is to provide a stable, curated stack of dependencies
       from which you can reliably build, test, and deploy your application using the standard
       Perl tool chain.  pinto provides various commands for gathering and managing distribution
       dependencies within the repository, so that you can control precisely which dependencies
       go into your application.


       pinto supports several commands that perform various operations on your repository, or
       report information about your repository.  To get a listing of all the available commands:

         $> pinto commands

       Each command has its own options and arguments.  To get a brief summary:

         $> pinto help COMMAND

       To see the complete manual for a command:

         $> pinto manual COMMAND


       The following options are available for all commands.

       --root DIRECTORY | URL
       -r DIRECTORY | URL
           Specifies the root of your repository.  This is mandatory for (almost) all commands
           unless you've set the "PINTO_REPOSITORY_ROOT" environment variable to point to your
           repository.  The root can be a path to a local directory, or the URL where a pintod
           server is listening.

           Do not colorize command output.

       --password PASS
       -p PASS
           The password to use for server authentication.  This is only relevant if using a
           remote repository.  If the PASS is "-" then you will be prompted for a password.

       -q  Report only fatal errors.  This option silently overrides the "--verbose" options.
           Also suppresses the progress meter.

           Note: The progress meter is always suppressed when using a remote repository.  This
           will hopefully be fixed a future release.

       --username NAME
       -u NAME
           The username to user for server authentication.  This is only relevant if using a
           remote repository.  Defaults to your current login.

       -v  Display more diagnostic messages.  This switch can be repeated multiple times for
           greater effect.  Diagnostic messages are always sent to STDERR.


       Each repository has a configuration file that lives inside the repostiory at
       .pinto/config/pinto.ini.  This file is generated for you with default values when you
       create the repository.  You can influence the initial value for some of the properties
       when you run the init command.  Thereafter, you can change these properties by editing the
       configuraiton file directly.

       The following configuration parameters are supported:

       sources = URL1 [URL2 URL3 ...]
           This is a space-delimited list of the URLs for the upstream repositories that this
           repository will pull archives from.  These can point to CPAN mirrors, minicpan
           mirrors, or stacks within other Pinto repositories.  Pinto will search the source
           repositories in the order they are listed here.  The default value is

       target_perl_version = X.X.X
           Sets the default "target_perl_version" property for all new stacks.  Otherwise, all
           new stacks will target the version of perl that you first used to create the
           repository.  You can always configure the target perl for each stack independently by
           using the props command.

       BEWARE: The above configuration properties are global -- they affect every stack in the
       repository.  They also have a major affect on how the repository behaves.  For these
       reasons, it is generally unwise to change these parameters once you have established the
       repository and filled it with content.  If you do change them, be sure and notify your
       team about it.  Each stack also has some stack-specific configuration properties.  Those
       can be shown or set using the props command.


       The following environment variables influence the behavior of pinto.  If you have
       installed pinto as a stand-alone application as described in Pinto::Manual::Installing,
       then the best place to set these variables is in your ~/.pintorc file.

           Sets the default path or URL of the pinto repository, if the "--root" is not
           specified.  The "--root" is required for almost all commands.  So if you usually only
           work with one repository, then setting this can save you quite a bit of typing.

           Sets the path to editor application that will be used to compose log messages.  If not
           set, defaults to "VISUAL" or "EDITOR".  If none of those are set, either "nano",
           "pico", or "vi" will be used (in that order).

           If set to a true value, suppresses color in all command output.

           A comma-separated list of exactly three color names.  Any name supported by
           Term::ANSIColor is allowed.  These will be the colors that pinto uses to colorize
           various output.  For example:

             PINTO_COLORS='red, light blue, green on_white'

           Listing too many or too few colors will cause an exception, as will using an invalid
           color name.

           Sets the default username when "--username" is not specified.  This is only used for
           authentication with a pintod server.  Defaults to your current shell username.

           Sets the default author identity when the "--author" option is not specified
           (currently, only used by the add command).  Defaults to your current shell username.
           By PAUSE convention, all author id's are forced to uppercase.

           Sets the path to the pager application that will be used to paginate output from each
           command.  Defaults to "PAGER".  If none of these are set, then no pager is used.

           If set to 1, pinto will emit more diagnostic messages to STDERR.  If set to 2, pinto
           will emit even more diagnostic messages.
