cacheHash :: ByteString -> StringSource

cacheHash computes the cache hash (i.e. filename) of a packed string.

unionRemoteCaches :: Cache -> Cache -> String -> IO CacheSource

unionRemoteCaches merges caches. It tries to do better than just blindly copying remote cache entries:

  • If remote repository is accessed through network, do not copy any cache entries from it. Taking local entries does not make sense and using network entries can lead to darcs hang when it tries to get to unaccessible host.
  • If remote repositoty is local, copy all network cache entries. For local cache entries if the cache directory exists and is writable it is added as writable cache, if it exists but is not writable it is added as read-only cache.

This approach should save us from bogus cache entries. One case it does not work very well is when you fetch from partial repository over network. Hopefully this is not a common case.

speculateFileUsingCache :: Cache -> HashedDir -> String -> IO ()Source

speculateFileUsingCache cache subdirectory name takes note that the file name is likely to be useful soon: pipelined downloads will add it to the (low-priority) queue, for the rest it is a noop.

speculateFilesUsingCache :: Cache -> HashedDir -> [String] -> IO ()Source

Note that the files are likely to be useful soon: pipelined downloads will add them to the (low-priority) queue, for the rest it is a noop.

writeFileUsingCache :: Cache -> Compression -> HashedDir -> ByteString -> IO StringSource

writeFileUsingCache cache compression subdir contents write the string contents to the directory subdir, except if it is already in the cache, in which case it is a noop. Warning (?) this means that in case of a hash collision, writing using writeFileUsingCache is a noop. The returned value is the filename that was given to the string.

peekInCache :: Cache -> HashedDir -> String -> IO BoolSource

peekInCache cache subdir hash tells whether cache and contains an object with hash hash in a writable position. Florent: why do we want it to be in a writable position?

hashedFilePath :: CacheLoc -> HashedDir -> String -> StringSource

hashedFilePath cachelocation subdir hash returns the physical filename of hash hash in the subdir section of cachelocation.

compareByLocality :: CacheLoc -> CacheLoc -> OrderingSource

Compares two caches, a remote cache is greater than a local one. The order of the comparison is given by: local < http < ssh
