b.t.TestPrefixAliasRegistry(registry.Registry) : class documentation

Part of bzrlib.tests View In Hierarchy

This helps implement shorcuts for the --starting-with selftest option. Overriding existing prefixes is not allowed but not fatal (a warning will be emitted).

Method register See Registry.register.

def register(self, key, obj, help=None, info=None, override_existing=False):
See Registry.register.

Trying to override an existing alias causes a warning to be emitted, not a fatal execption.

def resolve_alias(self, id_start):
Replace the alias by the prefix in the given string.

Using an unknown prefix is an error to help catching typos.
