mv: let 'git mv file no-such-dir/' error out on Windows, too
The previous commit c57f628 (mv: let 'git mv file no-such-dir/' error out) relies on that rename("file", "no-such-dir/") fails if the directory does not exist (note the trailing slash). This does not work as expected on Windows: This rename() call does not fail, but renames "file" to "no-such-dir" (not to "no-such-dir/file"). Insert an explicit check for this case to force an error. This changes the error message from $ git mv file no-such-dir/ fatal: renaming 'file' failed: Not a directory to $ git mv file no-such-dir/ fatal: destination directory does not exist, source=file, destination=no-such-dir/ Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
