Initial pass at git-ls

In Google there was (and possibly still is) a tool called “sourcerer” that let you browse through a repo. One nice feature it had was that deleted files and directories were shown struch through in red - and you could even follow down deleted dirs.

I’ve long wanted that view of a git repo. And today while digging through a rather old, imported work project it turned out that was useful to have. So I wrote a first pass at it. I also wrote a git-recover but that’s a bit more of a mess so maybe later.

closedir $dir;

my($wchar, $hchar, $wpixels, $hpixels) = GetTerminalSize();
my $maxlen = 0;

  $maxlen = max($maxlen, length($f)+3);
  $files{$f} = "-$f-";
}
foreach my $f (@files) {
  $maxlen = max($maxlen, length($f)+1);
  $files{$f} = "$f" unless $f eq "." || $f eq "..";
}

my $curchars = $maxlen;
foreach $f (sort(keys(%files))) {
  printf("%-${maxlen}s", $files{$f});
  $curchars += $maxlen;
  if ($curchars > $wchar) {
    $curchars = $maxlen;
    printf("\n");
  }
}
printf("\n") unless $curchars == $maxlen;

Be nice if it could accept args, work outside of the current dir, took some common ls flags and a number of other bits. Also, using git log instead of a plumbing command it likely a no-no.
