under-version-control - is an IO::Path under version control?


use under-version-control;

say "current directory is under version control"
  if ".".IO.&under-version-control;

say "file '' is under version control"
  if under-version-control "".IO;


under::version::control provides a subroutine that returns True if the argument appears to be under version control.

This is currently defined as it having a sibling ".git" directory, or any of its parents having a ".git" directory.

Intended to be used by CLI scripts before they do massive changes on a file system: being under version control provides a bigger chance of reversibility if something went wrong.
