       Git::Raw::Odb - Git object database class


       version 0.79


       A Git::Raw::Odb represents a git object database.

       WARNING: The API of this module is unstable and may change without warning (any change
       will be appropriately documented in the changelog).


   new( )
       Create a new object database.

   open( $directory )
       Create a new object database and automatically add the two default backends.  $directory
       should be the path to the 'objects' directory.

   backend_count( )
       Get the number of ODB backend objects.

   refresh( )
       Refresh the object database to load newly added files. If the object databases have
       changed on disk while the library is running, this function will force a reload of the
       underlying indexes. Use this method when you're confident that an external application has
       tampered with the ODB.

   foreach( $repo, $callback )
       Run $callback for every object available in the database. The callback receives a single
       argument, the OID of the object. A non-zero return value will terminate the loop.

   add_backend( $backend, $priority )
       Add a custom backend to the ODB. The backends are checked in relative ordering, based on
       the value of $priority.

   add_alternate( $backend, $priority )
       Add an alternate custom backend to the ODB. Alternate backends are always checked for
       objects after all the main backends have been exhausted. Writing is disabled on alternate

   read( $id )
       Read an object from the database. Returns a Git::Raw::Odb::Object or "undef" if the object
       does not exist.

   write( $data, type )
       Write an object directly to the database. Returns the OID of the object. $type should be
       one of the values as defines in the constants section of Git::Raw::Object.

   hash( $data, $type )
       Determine the object-ID (sha1 hash) of $data. $type should be one of the values as defined
       in the constants section of Git::Raw::Object.
