NAME

Unco - undo any command

SYNOPSIS

 # record changes to files made by cmd
 % unco record -- cmd args

 # display a list of recorded commands
 % unco history

 # undo a recorded change
 % unco undo <index>

 # redo a recorded change
 % undo redo <index>

DESCRIPTION

Unco is a wrapper program that records the changes made to files by programs so that they can be undone laterwards.

It uses a technique called library preloading (for more information consult the linux documents with keyword LD_PROLOAD, or os x document with keyword DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES) to trap the library calls that affect the files, and records the changes made by the programs being executed.

INSTALLATION

 cmake .
 make
 make install

SUB-COMMANDS

unco record

 % unco record [--log=<path>] [--append] -- cmd args

The command executes given command while logging the changes.

--log=<path>

specifies the location of the log (if omitted, the log is stored under $HOME/.unco with appropriate index)

--append

used together with --log for appending the changes to the log (default behavior is truncate)

unco history

 % unco history [--ppid=<pid>] [--cmd=<cmd>] [--cwd=<dir>]

Displays the list of recorded commands with their associated indices.

--ppid=<pid>

filters the output to commands that were spawned by given process id. If omitted, the default value is the process id that spawned the history command, so that only the records belonging to the current shell are being displayed. Set -1 as the argument to display all records.

--cmd=<cmd>

--print

displays the changes to be performed instead of actually applying them

unco redo
