Re: [augeas-devel] Migrating config file formats



After thinking about it some more, I think it could be useful to get
to a standard using subnodes.

Here is an example, unrelated to the suggested problem:


module Migration =

(* There are 3 possible syntaxes for a line
   The last one doesn't have a "@syntax" subnode, it's the default -
newest - syntax *)
let line = [ key Rx.word .
             ( (Sep.colon . store Rx.word . [ label "@syntax" . value "1" ])
             | (Sep.space . store Rx.word . [ label "@syntax" . value "2" ])
             | (Sep.equal . store Rx.word) )
             . Util.eol ]

let lns = line*

(* Now for some tests *)
let full = "foo:bar\nfoo=baz\nfoo baa\n"

(* Get all kind of syntaxes *)
test lns get full =
  { "foo" = "bar"
    { "@syntax" = "1" }
  }
  { "foo" = "baz" }
  { "foo" = "baa"
    { "@syntax" = "2" }
  }

(* Migrate all to new syntax *)
test lns put full after
   rm "//@syntax" =
   "foo=bar\nfoo=baz\nfoo=baa\n"

(* Force syntax 1 for last entry *)
test lns put full after
   set "/foo[3]/@syntax" "1" =
   "foo:bar\nfoo=baz\nfoo:baa\n"



Could that be an interesting approach in general?
