Module type
Class type

Save multiple kind of values in the same pack file. Values will be distinguished using V.magic, so they have to all be different.

include Irmin.CONTENT_ADDRESSABLE_STORE with type key = key with type value = V.t

Content-addressable stores

Content-addressable stores are store where it is possible to read and add new values. Keys are derived from the values raw contents and hence are deterministic.

type -'a t

The type for content-addressable backend stores. The 'a phantom type carries information about the store mutability.

type key = key

The type for keys.

type value = V.t

The type for raw values.

val mem : [> ] t -> key -> bool Lwt.t

mem t k is true iff k is present in t.

val find : [> ] t -> key -> value option Lwt.t

find t k is Some v if k is associated to v in t and None is k is not present in t.

val add : 'a t -> value -> key Lwt.t

Overwrite add to work with a read-only database handler.

val unsafe_add : 'a t -> key -> value -> unit Lwt.t

Overwrite unsafe_add to work with a read-only database handler.

type index = index
val v : ?fresh:bool -> ?readonly:bool -> ?lru_size:int -> index:index -> string -> t Lwt.t
val batch : t -> ([ | Irmin.Perms.write ] t -> 'a Lwt.t) -> 'a Lwt.t

batch t f applies the writes in f in a separate batch. The exact guarantees depend on the implementation.

val unsafe_append : ensure_unique:bool -> overcommit:bool -> 'a t -> key -> value -> unit
val unsafe_mem : 'a t -> key -> bool
val unsafe_find : check_integrity:bool -> 'a t -> key -> value option
val flush : ?index:bool -> ?index_merge:bool -> 'a t -> unit
val sync : ?on_generation_change:(unit -> unit) -> 'a t -> unit

syncs a readonly instance with the files on disk. The same file instance is shared between several pack instances. Therefore only the first pack instance that checks a generation change, can see it. on_generation_change is a callback for all pack instances to react to a generation change.

val version : 'a t -> [ `V1 | `V2 ]
val generation : 'a t -> int64
val offset : 'a t -> int64
val integrity_check : offset:int64 -> length:int -> key -> _ t -> (unit, [ `Wrong_hash | `Absent_value ]) result
include Irmin.Export_for_backends.Store_properties.CLOSEABLE with type 'a t := 'a t
val close : 'a t -> unit Lwt.t

close t frees up all the resources associated with t. Any operations run on a closed handle will raise Closed.

include Irmin.Export_for_backends.Store_properties.CLEARABLE with type 'a t := 'a t
val clear : 'a t -> unit Lwt.t

Clear the store. This operation is expected to be slow.

val clear_caches : 'a t -> unit

clear_cache t clears all the in-memory caches of t. Persistent data are not removed.

val clear_keep_generation : 'a t -> unit Lwt.t
