[PATCH] Return proper error valud from "parse_date()"
Right now we don't return any error value at all from parse_date(), and if we can't parse it, we just silently leave the result buffer unchanged. That's fine for the current user, which will always default to the current date, but it's a crappy interface, and we might well be better off with an error message rather than just the default date. So let's change the thing to return a negative value if an error occurs, and the length of the result otherwise (snprintf behaviour: if the buffer is too small, it returns how big it _would_ have been). [ I started looking at this in case we could support date-based revision names. Looks ugly. Would have to parse relative dates.. ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
