Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Auto-Edit SVN Conflicts

[ #36204 ]

From time to time, we get conflicts when we merge SVN branches. Now I can automatically edit them:

alias edit_conflicts="${EDITOR:-vim} \$(svn status|grep '^C'|awk '{print \$2}')"

That uses whatever is in your EDITOR environment variable, but defaults to vim.

  • Usually, you can replace any grep | awk with just awk. In the instance above, you could say awk '/^C/{print $2}'.
    • Thanks. Works like a charm. I now have the following:

      alias edit_conflicts="${EDITOR:-vim} \$(svn status|awk '/^C/{print \$2}')"
      alias edit_code="${EDITOR:-vim} \$(svn st | awk '/^[AM].*p[ml]/{print \$2}')"
      alias edit_tests="${EDITOR:-vim} \$(svn st | awk '/^[AM].*\.t$/{print \$2}')"
