#ifndef BRANCH_H
#define BRANCH_H
/* Functions for acting on the information about branches. */
* Creates a new branch, where head is the branch currently checked
* out, name is the new branch name, start_name is the name of the
* existing branch that the new branch should start from, force
* enables overwriting an existing (non-head) branch, reflog creates a
* reflog for the branch, and track causes the new branch to be
* configured to merge the remote branch that start_name is a tracking
* branch for (if any).
void create_branch(const char *head, const char *name, const char *start_name,
int force, int reflog,
int clobber_head, int quiet, enum branch_track track);
* Validates that the requested branch may be created, returning the
* interpreted ref in ref, force indicates whether (non-head) branches
* may be overwritten. A non-zero return value indicates that the force
* parameter was non-zero and the branch already exists.
* Contrary to all of the above, when attr_only is 1, the caller is
* not interested in verifying if it is Ok to update the named
* branch to point at a potentially different commit. It is merely
* asking if it is OK to change some attribute for the named branch
* (e.g. tracking upstream).
* NEEDSWORK: This needs to be split into two separate functions in the
* longer run for sanity.
int validate_new_branchname(const char *name, struct strbuf *ref, int force, int attr_only);
* Remove information about the state of working on the current
* branch. (E.g., MERGE_HEAD)
void remove_branch_state(void);
* Configure local branch "local" as downstream to branch "remote"
* from remote "origin". Used by git branch --set-upstream.
