[PATCH] Rename and extend read_tree_with_tree_or_commit_sha1
This patch renames read_tree_with_tree_or_commit_sha1() to read_object_with_reference() and extends it to automatically dereference not just "commit" objects but "tag" objects. With this patch, you can say e.g.: ls-tree $tag read-tree -m $(merge-base $tag $HEAD) $tag $HEAD diff-cache $tag diff-tree $tag $HEAD Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
