Git::File::History Test-install and cache deps

Get all versions of a file in a git repository. Main use case for this is when you use the repository for storage, and want to examine the progression of some files. Or whatever. I don't really know, it was an itch I had to scratch and here we are.


Usual way:

zef install Git::File::History


use Git::File::History;

my $file-histories =; # Will throw if not in a repo
say $file-histories.history-of( "");

# .date contains a DateTime object, .state the contents of the file
for $file-histories.history-of( "t/01-basic.t") -> $fv {
   say $, " → ", $fv.state.split("\n").elems;

# Repo in another directory:
my $file-histories' = "another/dir" );

# Limit to a few files (for big repos)
my $yet-another = :files("t/*.t") );
