stash: simplify defaulting to "save" and reject unknown options
With the earlier DWIM patches, certain combination of options defaulted to the "save" command correctly while certain equally valid combination did not. For example, "git stash -k" were Ok but "git stash -q -k" did not work. This makes the logic of defaulting to "save" much simpler. If there are no non-flag arguments, it is clear that there is no command word, and we default to "save" subcommand. This rule prevents "git stash -q apply" from quietly creating a stash with "apply" as the message. This also teaches "git stash save" to reject an unknown option. This is to keep a mistyped "git stash save --quite" from creating a stash with a message "--quite", and this safety is more important with the new logic to default to "save" with any option-looking argument without an explicit comand word. [jc: this is based on Matthieu's 3-patch series, and a follow-up discussion, and he and Peff take all the credit; if I have introduced bugs while reworking, they are mine.] Signed-off-by: Matthieu Moy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
