Distributed: Every user has access to the full command set, removing boundaries between server and client or committer and non-committers. Interactive: Darcs is easy to learn and efficient to use because it asks you questions in response to simple commands, giving you choices in your work flow. You can choose to record one change in a file, while ignoring another. As you update from upstream, you can review each patch name, even the full "diff" for interesting patches. Smart: Originally developed by physicist David Roundy, darcs is based on a unique algebra of patches.

This text assumes that you have already installed darcs and obtained the development version of Carpet, but are possibly too scared or lazy to actually read the darcs manual. As you have a copy of the Carpet repository stored locally, this will not require an internet connection and will be very fast.
One other difference from CVS is that darcs always considers all changes in the repository, and not just changes to a certain file or directory. This does not actually create or delete files; you have to do that yourself.
If you move a file or directory, say. This does actually perform the move, as indicated by the darcs command mv , which is spelled the same way as the corresponding Unix command. If you have implemented a certain feature, corrected a certain error, or fixed a typo, then it is time to record that change as a patch. The command. Please put only related changes into a single patch; it is very easy to create multiple patches. Can also be applied to a specific file.
To skip the process of verifying each "hunk", use the -a option. Each patch needs a one-line description. This description should be somewhat descriptive, because other people will decide from this description whether they want this patch or not. On the other hand, " Fix typo in comment " is probably good enough. If you feel like it, you can also add a detailed description of the patch. Note that this description should describe the patch, and should not describe how to use a certain feature; this should go into a comment or a README or the documentation.
If you later discover that your patch is incomplete, missing a file, or contains an error, then you can use. It is often better to correct an erroneous patch than to pile a second patch on top of it. If you think that things are very wrong, then. When you have one or a few patches that you would like to contribute back to the community, then you can use.
The Carpet maintainers can then apply this patch to the Carpet repository, so that the next darcs pull will list this patch for all people. Undoes the effect of pulling a patch from a remote repository. This is useful if you suspect that this patch introduced an error. Undoes changes to your working directory that have not yet been recorded. As usual, the authoritative source of information is the darcs manual , which also ships with your darcs installation.

This page is the output of darcs help markdown of Darcs 2. Please do not edit manually. Without arguments, darcs help prints a categorized list of darcs commands and a short description of each one. With an extra argument, darcs help foo prints detailed help about the darcs command foo. The darcs initialize command creates an empty repository in the current directory. By default, patches of the new repository are in the darcs-2 semantics. However it is possible to create a repository in darcs-1 semantics with the flag --darcs-1 , althought this is not recommended except for sharing patches with a project that uses patches in the darcs-1 semantics.
