avoid segfaults on parse_object failure
Many call-sites of parse_object assume that they will get a non-NULL return value; this is not the case if we encounter an error while parsing the object. This patch adds a wrapper function around parse_object that handles dying automatically, and uses it anywhere we immediately try to access the return value as a non-NULL pointer (i.e., anywhere that we would currently segfault). This wrapper may also be useful in other places. The most obvious one is code like: o = parse_object(sha1); if (!o) die(...); However, these should not be mechanically converted to parse_object_or_die, as the die message is sometimes customized. Later patches can address these sites on a case-by-case basis. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
